Foreign bodies in food

In food production, contaminations or foreign bodies such as plastic residues occur from time to time. Such foreign objects can cause many different injuries and complaints. Depending on the size, nature and material of the swallowed part, chewing injuries can occur in the mouth and throat. They can also block the esophagus and digestive organs. If smaller parts remain in the body, they can also cause inflammation. Internal injuries cannot be ruled out either. (ad)
