Netto recalls pickled vegetables due to risk of injury
Netto Marken-Discount Stiftung & Co. KG informs of a nationwide recall. With the pickled vegetables concerned, there is an increased risk of injury when consuming them due to the broken glass that may be contained. The consumption of the following goods is therefore strongly discouraged.
For reasons of preventive consumer protection, the article “Satori bamboo shoots in strips” in a 330 gram jar is recalled. All pickled sprout expiration dates are affected by the recall. Bamboo shoots were offered at Netto Marken Discount branches throughout Germany.
Other unaffected “Satori” items
According to Netto, the affected goods have already been removed from store shelves. The discounter ensures that the other products of the brand “Satori” are not affected by the recall.
Consumers who have already purchased the bamboo shoots mentioned above can return them to any Netto branch. The purchase price will be refunded there. There is no need to present the receipt, as Netto reported in a recall newsletter on the company’s website.
Questions about the recall?
On 0800 200 0015, Netto customer service will answer all your questions about the recall from Monday to Saturday (6:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.).
Possible health risks from broken glass in food
Broken glass in food poses various health risks. Depending on the size, shape and sharpness of the foreign body, puncture and cut injuries to the hands, mouth and throat are possible. The teeth could also be damaged by the glass. In addition, internal injuries, inflammation and breathing difficulties cannot be excluded if the broken glass is swallowed. (vb)
