Communications experts have praised discount grocer Aldi’s response to recent allegations of above-regulation lead content in one of its water tap products, after the company’s chief executive took to Facebook to alleviate fears the product could cause health risks.
Earlier this month, media publications around the country reported on tests from the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) for lead content of Aldi’s Spiral Tap, alleging the product had 15 times the permissible amount.
At the time, Aldi told SmartCompany it had done its own testing and found the product had safe levels of lead. Yesterday, the company released another statement, confirming it had done additional testing and there was no cause for concern.
