Manufacturer recalls porridge for foreign objects made of hard plastic

The company SchapfenMühle GmbH & Co. KG has started a recall for various porridge products. In some packs of the oatmeal rice, which was also sold by Aldi Nord, there could be hard plastic splinters. Ingested plastic parts can be harmful to health.

Hard plastic splinters possible in individual packs

The company SchapfenMühle GmbH & Co. KG from Ulm (Baden Württemberg) is recalling various porridge products that were offered nationwide in various trading companies such as Aldi Nord. According to a message from the manufacturer, a technical defect in a production system cannot be ruled out with certainty that hard plastic splinters could be in individual packages.

Foreign bodies in food

In food production, due to errors in the manufacturing processes, contamination or foreign bodies such as aluminum or plastic residues can occur again and again.

Foreign bodies in food can cause many different injuries and complaints.

Depending on the size, nature and material of the swallowed body, chewing injuries can occur in the mouth and throat.

Depending on the size, swallowed plastic 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 excluded.

It can become especially dangerous if the objects are glass. (ad)
