Risk of injury due to plastic chips in the grated cheese from Lidl
A cheese product sold by Lidl can currently cause unpleasant surprises. The Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety and Lidl Germany warn of plastic foreign bodies that have got into the grated cheese.
Affected is the product "Milbona Gouda young grated, matured at least 7 weeks" in the 250 gram pack with the date of minimum durability April 21, 2019, the identity number NL Z 0507 i EG and the lot numbers 834799538051020190121 and 834799538051021190121.
Under no circumstances consume
As the manufacturer reports, it cannot be ruled out that the affected product contains foreign plastics. "Because of the possible risk of injury when consumed, customers should pay attention to the recall and never consume the product," Lidl warns in a customer information on the website of the discounter.
Have you already bought the grated cheese?
According to Lidl, the affected product can be returned to any branch without showing the receipt. The purchase price will be refunded. Delicateur grated cheese was sold in the federal states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Lower Saxony and Rhineland-Palatinate. As Lidl reports, the product has already been removed from the store shelves. Other products from the manufacturer are not affected.
What are the dangers of plastic parts in food?
Plastic chips in food can cause cuts and stab wounds in the mouth when chewing. If the plastic particles are swallowed, they can restrict breathing and cause breathing difficulties or shortness of breath. In the worst case, there is a risk of suffocation (see: First aid for dangerous foreign bodies in the body). Furthermore, foreign bodies, depending on their shape and size, can cause inflammation and / or stomach discomfort. Internal bleeding cannot be ruled out if the small parts swallowed are pointed or sharp-edged. (vb)
