Discounter calls back bread - due to possible contamination with broken glass

The food discounter Hofer has started a recall for bread because there could be broken glass in it. We strongly advise against eating the affected food.

White wake-up calls and mixed bread are called back

The Austrian food chain Hofer KG, a subsidiary of Aldi Süd, is calling the items Gutes vom Bäcker Weißer Wecken 500 g sliced ​​with the best-before date 07/07/2019 and Gutes vom Bäcker Mischbrot whole and sliced ​​1,000 g / 500 g with MHD 08.07.2019 from the supplier Kuchen- Peter Backwaren GmbH due to possible contamination with broken glass.

Ingestion is not recommended

"Because of possible contamination with broken glass, it is not advisable to consume the products mentioned with the appropriate expiry date," the company wrote on its website.

The bread was sold in certain branches in Austria. According to the information, the sale of the product was stopped immediately.

It is not suitable for consumption and can be returned in all Hofer branches. Customers will be refunded the purchase price even without proof of purchase.

Broken glass can lead to serious injuries

Food that could contain broken glass or broken glass should in principle no longer be consumed.

Eating them can lead to serious injuries in the mouth and throat or to internal injuries.

In food production, errors in the manufacturing processes can repeatedly lead to contamination or foreign bodies such as glass, aluminum or plastic residues.

Only a few months ago, a recall for bread was started in Germany because foreign bodies had been discovered in it. (ad)
