Contaminated sesame from India is currently causing problems for the German food industry.

Now there is a recall concerning a supposedly healthy meal: muesli.

  • In Germany and other countries there is

    food contamination

    from residues.

  • The reason for this are deliveries of sesame seeds that contain traces of a

    carcinogenic

    pesticide.

  • For this reason, a north German organic company has to

    initiate

    a

    muesli recall

    .

Bremen / Munich - In the past few weeks, food recalls have made the rounds based on a risk from

contaminated sesame

.

Another message has now been added: The

Allos Hof-Manufaktur

has to put four different types of muesli from the range on sale.

Reason: "preventive consumer protection", as the company based in Bremen has announced.

The sesame as an important ingredient of the affected muesli varieties with the flavors base, fruit, chocolate and nut exceeds the limit value permitted in Germany for the

pesticide ethylene oxide

.

The products were also delivered in neighboring Switzerland.
