Germany-wide cheese recall

The Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety and various food retailers such as Rewe warn of a grated cheese that is contaminated with tiny pieces of plastic. The affected cheese should never be consumed and will be recalled by the manufacturer.

Andechser Molkerei Scheitz is recalling the product "Andechser Natur Bio Reibekäse" in a resealable 150 gram bag with the best before date April 3, 2020. "The product may contain blue, very small (about 3.2 millimeters) pieces of blue plastic," warns the manufacturer in a consumer information. A call back was initiated.

Please do not consume anymore

The cheese mentioned above is sold nationwide in food retailers and health food stores, including Rewe. "Consumers who have already purchased the goods are asked not to continue using them, but to return them to the point of sale," Rewe wrote in a customer information. The purchase price will be reimbursed in full there. Other best before dates of the grated cheese as well as other articles of the brand "Andechser Natur" are not affected by the recall.

Do you have any questions about the callback?

The Andechser Molkerei has set up a telephone hotline for inquiries about the recall. Consumers can obtain information on the callback on 0800 5893785. The hotline is available Monday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Foreign objects in the food can cause severe damage

Small parts in food can quickly be accidentally swallowed. This creates the risk of damage to the gastrointestinal tract. In addition, foreign bodies stuck in the throat can cause breathing difficulties. Further information can be found in the article: First aid for dangerous foreign bodies in the body. (vb)
