Foreign bodies cannot be completely excluded
During the production of food there are always contaminations with foreign bodies such as metal, plastic or glass parts. According to experts, these problems cannot be ruled out 100 percent even if the surveillance should always be complete.
Foreign bodies in food can - depending on the size, nature and material - cause many different injuries and complaints. Consumption is therefore generally not advisable. In addition to foreign bodies, contamination with health-threatening germs is a common reason for food recalls. (ad)
