Advent is dawning and many people are turning to gingerbread sweets. However, care should be taken with the "EDEKA chocolate gingerbread, hearts, stars and pretzels bittersweet".

KG. According to the manufacturer, it can not be ruled out that there are dark green plastic parts in the product. The recall will affect all articles with a sell-by date May 30, 2019, which include the number 748 in the batch number.

According to the company, the goods have already been removed from the sale. Anyone who had already bought the affected item can return it without presenting the receipt in an EDEKA or Marktkauf store and will be refunded the purchase price.

Dangers due to swallowed small parts

Depending on the condition, plastic parts in food can cause puncture and cuts in the mouth. If a foreign body is swallowed, it can, depending on its shape and size, cause breathing difficulties or even respiratory distress. In the worst case threatens swallowed small parts suffocation. In addition, there is a risk that the plastic parts get stuck in the body and thus trigger inflammation. With sharp, sharp or edged foreign bodies there is also the danger that it comes to stomach problems or internal injuries, while the foreign body migrates through the digestive tract. (Vb)
