Impurities and foreign bodies
Unfortunately, in food production there are always contaminations or foreign bodies such as aluminum or plastic residues.
Foreign bodies in food can cause many different injuries and symptoms.
Depending on the size, nature and material, they can cause wounds in the mouth and throat when chewing.
Depending on the size, swallowed parts can block the esophagus or the digestive organs.
If smaller parts remain in the body, they can sometimes cause inflammation. Digestion or stomach problems and internal injuries cannot be ruled out either.
It can become especially dangerous if the objects are glass.
It is therefore always advisable not to consume such products when suspected of foreign bodies. (Ad)
