ALDI has confirmed that a popular generic branded grocery product has been discontinued.
Customers took to Twitter to criticize Aldi’s decision to take the item off the shelves.
“What happened to your house brand corned beef hash?” asked one customer on Twitter.
“If I wanted the Hormel brand, I could go to a regular grocery store.”
The company responded that the corned beef hash was finally pulled off the shelves.
“Terrible decision,” replied the angry customer.
Aldi’s product was called Brookdale Corned Beef Hash.
As a result, the product had the same USDA facility number as Hormel’s hash product Dave’s closet blog.
The ID number indicates that they were the same products – packaged in different containers.
Aldi’s hash has been discontinued both in stores and for delivery by Amazon.
The Amazon marketplace didn’t approve of the meat and potato dish – customers rated the product 2.8 stars out of five.
Aldi has confirmed via its Twitter account that it has discontinued several products.
MORE ALDI DISCONTINUED PRODUCTS
Aldi has also discontinued items from the baking department.
The company confirmed to an excited customer that the double chocolate bread mix is gone forever.
The grocer also replaced its popular Potato Puffs with Crispy Tots.
Two discontinued snacks with the “Specialty Selected” label have also disappeared: the Emmental and Gouda cheese bites.
Ditto for the Pueblo Lindo Taquitos chips – the company confirmed they are no longer available.
Aldi is not only changing its product range – customers have noticed some changes in the discounter’s branches.
Aldi introduces new self-checkout machines in stores.
Three stores in new York began using cash register technology earlier this year – much to the chagrin of some customers.
“#Aldi, I’m your customer, not your employee. I’m already packing my own bags and refuse to use self check out,” one shopper said on the site.
“It’s not for me [convenience]”They introduced them to increase your profits,” they added.
The brand confirmed that it will continue to roll out more self-checkout systems in stores across the country.
The grocer revealed in a tweet: “ALDI introduces the offer in new branches every week.”
Aldi joins several companies making the move to technology-automated customer service.
However, as brands increasingly adopt customer-dependent payment technologies, company executives continue to sound the alarm about an increase in theft.
“Pre-COVID, it actually wobbled up a couple of three basis points when we rolled out self-checkout, and since then it’s come back down a bit and is in a very narrow range,” Costco CEO Richard Galanti said of the influx of theft.
