Abstract: In this note it is shown that the reduction of a simple abelian variety of dimension $ \geqslant 2$, defined over an algebraic number field, at any finite good prime need not be simple. We give an example of a two-dimensional simple abelian variety defined over an algebraic number field whose reduction at any finite prime is isogenous either to a product of ordinary elliptic curves or to a product of supersingular elliptic curves.
