Recall for lemon juice concentrate expanded - lime juice concentrate also affected
Gunz Warenhandels GmbH recalled Piacelli Citrilemon lemon juice concentrate a few days ago because of an increased sulfite content. Now the recall has been massively expanded. In the meantime, goods with another best before date and lime juice concentrate are also to be returned to the sales outlet.
Lime juice concentrate is now being recalled
Gunz Warenhandels GmbH from Austria started a product recall for Piacelli Citrilemon Lemon Juice Concentrate a few days ago because an increased sulfite content was found in a batch of the product that was sold throughout Germany. The callback has now been expanded. In the meantime, goods with another best before date and lime juice concentrate are also to be returned to the sales outlets.
Increased sulfite levels have not been declared
Gunz Warenhandels GmbH no longer calls only Piacelli Citrilemon Lemon Juice Concentrate 200 ml (EAN: 9002859018800), but also Piacelli Citrilemon Lemon Juice Concentrate 1 l (EAN: 9002859042744), Piacelli Citrigreen Lime Juice Concentrate 200 ml (EAN: 9002859026270) as well as Piacelli Citrate Lime (EAN: 9002859026270) as well as Piacelli Citrate Lemon Juice Concentrate : 9002859101533) back.
The recall affects all products mentioned with the best before dates 14.07.2020 - 17.12.2020.
"An increased sulfite content was found in the product mentioned above, which was not declared on the label," the company wrote in a message that was published on the portal "Lebensmittelwarnung.de" of the federal states and the Federal Office of Consumer Protection.
Eating sulfite-containing foods can lead to severe intolerance reactions in some people.
Purchase price will be refunded
The recall applies to the entire country.
According to the company, "all necessary measures have already been taken to avoid such an incident in the future."
Buyers are asked to return the affected product to the store. The purchase price will be refunded.
Sulfites are the salts and esters of sulfurous acid H2SO3. They are approved as additives for numerous foods and are used as preservatives and as antioxidants.
As the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL) writes on its website, sulfite salts in food are well tolerated by most people, since a body's own enzyme (sulfite oxidase) enables rapid oxidation to harmless sulfate.
For some people, however, eating sulfite-containing foods can lead to severe intolerance reactions such as asthmatic reactions.
"Some of the asthma patients are particularly affected by this intolerance," reports the LGL.
"People with a deficiency of the enzyme sulfite oxidase can also experience health problems," said the experts.
The symptoms of intolerance reactions to sulfite salts are in part similar to those of allergic reactions. (ad)
