Metal splinters in children's food

The Rossmann drugstore is recalling salted corn wafers of the “Genuss Plus” variety and corn wafers with sea salt from the “Enerbio” brand because they could contain metal splinters. The batches are affected:

Metal splinters in food can cause injuries to the mouth or teeth when chewed.

In some cases, they also settle in the body and cause inflammation or internal injuries. They can also get stuck in the neck area and trigger breathlessness.
