On 13 July 2017 the ACCC informed consumers that an investigation was underway into the potential for lead exposure associated with use of the ALDI ‘Spiral Spring Mixer Tap’.
ALDI commissioned urgent testing by a NATA accredited facility and advised the ACCC on 26 July that the taps have been tested and passed the requirements set out in AS/NZS 4020:2005.
This standard sets out the acceptable concentrations of metals in drinking water. Consequently ALDI is advising consumers that the Spiral Spring Mixer Tap Model No. NI183ESCRT-AUD/Product Code 57581’ remains safe for consumer use.
