Possible dangers of broken glass in food

Various health risks can emanate from pieces of glass in food. Depending on the size, shape and sharpness, puncture or cut wounds may occur on the hands or in the mouth and throat. Damage to the teeth can also not be excluded.

If broken glass is swallowed, there is a risk of internal injury or difficulty breathing. If foreign bodies get stuck in the body, they can trigger inflammatory processes. (vb)
