French supermarket Carrefour has started warning its shoppers of “shrinkflation” with shelf-edge signs.

Carrefour this week began naming and shaming products that have been made smaller but retained the same price.

Lipton iced tea, Lindt chocolate and Viennetta ice cream are among the products it flagged as having smaller or lighter pack contents, according to the BBC.
