Foreign bodies cannot be completely excluded
Due to errors in the manufacturing processes, contamination or foreign bodies such as metal, plastic or glass parts can repeatedly occur in food products.
According to experts, these cannot be ruled out 100 percent even if the monitoring should always be complete.
In addition to foreign bodies, contamination with health-endangering germs is a common reason for food recalls. (ad)
