Invisible danger in potato salad: suffocation
The invisible danger in these Edeka potato salads is not to be underestimated: Depending on size and condition, plastic foreign bodies can cause respiratory distress as well as a risk of cutting when swallowed. Thus, a Erstickungsgefahr can never be completely ruled out, reports produkt.de.
As a precaution, the trading company has removed the salads from the sale. Customers who have purchased the corresponding product can return the potato salad and get the purchase price refunded – even without a receipt.
Not only the potato salad at Edeka is affected by a recall: Meatballs from Rewe, walnuts from Norma and sausages from Aldi are also to be treated with caution. The discovery of a dog owner in the Aldi food for her animal darling recently caused excitement.
