May contain broken glass: recall for blueberry jam

The grocer W.L. Ahrens GmbH & Co. KG has started a recall for blueberry jam. The product sold at Aldi may contain broken glass. Because of the possible risk of injury, it is better not to eat it.

The W.L. KG from Paderborn (North Rhine-Westphalia) is recalling the product "Blueberry Jam Extra 370g" from the TAMARA brand. According to the grocer, the item could contain broken glass.

Sold in branches of Aldi Nord

As reported by the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) on its portal "", the W.L. KG returned the product "Blueberry Jam Extra 370g" of the brand TAMARA with the best before date 17.09.21.

According to a press release, the best-before date is on the edge of the glass lid.

"It cannot be ruled out that the product may contain broken glass," the company writes.

According to the information, the product was manufactured in the Aldi companies Bargteheide, Berlin, Beucha, Beverstedt, Datteln, Grammetal (Weimar), Greven, Hann. Münden, Herten, Hesel, Jarmen, Bad Laasphe, Lingen, Barleben (Meitzendorf), Mittenwalde, Nortorf, Radevormwald, Rinteln, Salzgitter, Seevetal, Schloss-Holte, Lehrte Sievershausen, Werl, Weyhe, Wilsdruff and Wittstock. It can be returned to the nearest Aldi Nord branch.

Splinters of glass in food can be dangerous

Food that is suspected of containing broken glass should in principle no longer be consumed. Because the consumption can lead to serious injuries in the mouth and throat as well as dangerous internal injuries.

Due to errors in the manufacturing processes, foreign bodies such as glass, aluminum or plastic residues often occur in food production.

Another reason for frequent food recalls is contamination with bacteria such as salmonella or listeria. (ad)
