Richard Lloyd, Which? executive director said:
“Aldi has joined a growing list of supermarkets by publishing its plan on how it intends to tackle the potentially fatal campylobacter bug.
“We’ve been calling for all supermarkets to publish commitments, and this latest move leaves Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s with no excuses. We need to see all supermarkets demonstrate to their customers that they will bring down levels of campylobacter in the chicken we buy.”
Notes to editor
- Nearly 35,000 have signed up to our ‘Make Chicken Safe‘ campaign
- Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Co-op and now Aldi have all published their plans to tackle campylobacter.
- As part of our campaign we wrote an open letter to Asda, Co-op, M&S, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose calling on them to make publicly available plans on how they will tackle campylobacter, with clear timescales for action.
