What are the dangers of foreign bodies in food?
Metallic foreign bodies, broken glass or broken glass, wood and plastic splinters can cause cuts and stab wounds in the mouth. If the foreign body is swallowed, depending on its shape and size, it can cause breathing difficulties or shortness of breath. If small parts are swallowed, there is also a risk of suffocation. Furthermore, the foreign bodies can get stuck in the organism and trigger inflammation. With pointed, sharp or angular foreign bodies, stomach problems or internal bleeding can also occur as they pass through the digestive tract.
Have you already consumed the product?
As the manufacturer reports, the probability that there are other foreign bodies in the products is rather low. If you have consumed the product and have not noticed any physical symptoms, there is no need to worry, according to the manufacturer. However, if there are any abnormalities as a result of consumption, a doctor should be contacted and advised of the possible swallowed foreign body. (vb)
