Aldi wipes slate clean with ACCC

Geelong Advertiser - - BUSINESS BEAT -

THE con­sumer watch­dog has ended its in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Aldi’s bath­room clean­ing wipes af­ter the su­per­mar­ket chain re­moved la­belling sug­gest­ing the prod­uct was flush­able.

In July the Aus­tralian Com­pe­ti­tion and Con­sumer Com­mis­sion prompted Aldi to tem­po­rar­ily re­move the wipes from sale due to con­cerns over them be­ing la­belled as “flush­able” and able to “dis­in­te­grate in the sewage sys­tem”.

“We’re pleased that Aldi has added a ‘do not flush’ mes­sage for con­sumers, mak­ing it clear that the bath­room clean­ing wipes it is still sell­ing should be dis­posed of in a rub­bish bin in­stead of a toi­let,” ACCC chair­man Rod Sims said.
