Health risk for allergy sufferers: Recall started for wafer rolls

The discount chain TK Maxx has started a recall for various wafer rolls. According to the company, the confectionery may contain egg and this is not specified as an ingredient. In the case of allergy sufferers, consumption could lead to health problems.

The discounter TK Maxx calls back various wafer rolls because they contain egg and this is not stated in the list of ingredients on the product label. The confectionery could "be harmful for people who are allergic to eggs", says a notice that the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety published on its portal "".

Allergy sufferers should not consume the products

The following products are affected by the recall:

  • LITALY Wafer Rolls - Vanilla 400 g (Batch 550)
  • LITALY wafer rolls - cocoa 400 g (batch 549)
  • LITALY wafer rolls - hazelnut 400 g (batch 551)

The goods were sold in the federal states of Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Berlin, Brandenburg, Hesse, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saxony-Anhalt and Schleswig-Holstein.

"If you have bought an affected product and you or a member of your family are allergic to egg, please do not eat this product," the company writes. Purchased goods can be returned to any TK Maxx branch. The purchase price will be refunded - even without a receipt.

One of the most common allergy triggers

As the European Center for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) explains on its website, chicken egg is one of the most common allergy triggers worldwide. In childhood, egg allergy is the second most common allergic disease after milk allergy.

According to the foundation, the symptoms appear within a short time after contact and mostly in the digestive tract in the form of swallowing disorders, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and flatulence. The skin can also be affected by an egg allergy. There may be redness, wheals and itching, or swelling of the face.

In addition, neurodermatitis can be triggered or worsened by an egg allergy. Similar to other food allergies, the symptoms can also show up on the respiratory tract. Then allergic rhinitis or asthmatic complaints arise. In very rare cases, anaphylactic shock with shortness of breath and cardiac arrest can occur. (ad)
