Foreign bodies in food
In food production, due to errors in manufacturing processes, contaminants or foreign bodies, such as aluminum or plastic waste, can occur repeatedly.
Foreign bodies in food can cause many injuries and discomforts.
Depending on the size, condition and material of the swallowed body, sores in the mouth and throat may occur during chewing.
The swallowed plastic parts can – depending on size – block the esophagus or digestive organs.
If minor parts remain in the body, they may cause inflammation. In addition, digestive or stomach problems and internal injuries can not be ruled out.
Above all, it can be dangerous if the objects are glass. (Ad)
