Foreign bodies in food
In food production, unfortunately, there are always contaminations or foreign bodies such as glass, aluminum or plastic residues.
Foreign bodies in food can sometimes cause dangerous injuries and symptoms when consumed.
Depending on the size, nature and material of the swallowed part, chewing can occur in the mouth and throat, for example. In addition, depending on the size, swallowed foreign bodies can also block the esophagus or digestive organs.
If smaller parts remain in the body, they can trigger inflammation in some cases. Internal injuries cannot be ruled out either.
Therefore, it is generally not recommended to consume foods that may contain foreign bodies. (ad)
