Nationwide recall campaign for plastic parts in EDEKA spinach leaves


Recall from Edeka: Foreign matter in spinach leaves

The Edeka supermarket chain is calling back frozen leaf spinach. According to company information, it cannot be ruled out that there are plastic foreign bodies in the product. Ingested plastic parts can be harmful to health.

Foreign matter in frozen spinach

As is clear from a press release, the supermarket chain Edeka is recalling the article "EDEKA spinach portioned" (frozen) in the 450-gram folding box, supplied by Ardo GmbH in Ratingen. Only the goods with the best before dates (BBD) 14.05.2020 and 15.05.2020 are affected. "The manufacturer cannot rule out that there are foreign plastic objects in individual packs of the product," says the message.

Offered mainly at Marktkauf and Edeka

According to the information, the item affected by the recall was mainly offered by Marktkauf and Edeka.

According to the company, the goods have already been taken out of sale.

Consumers who bought the affected item with the stated best-before dates will receive a refund of the purchase price in their shops without presenting their receipt.

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)
