    not dangerous to most people.

  • Now he reacts to the mistake and calls back his

    fruit jelly

    .

As a “precaution”, the company from

Herrenberg

advises

against consuming the product, as it could

trigger allergic reactions

in people with

sulfite intolerance

.

Sulfur dioxide

and the resulting

sulfite salts

are quite common in food for preservation purposes and are

approved as additives

for numerous products, such as

wines

and

fruit gums

.

Most people tolerate the

allergen

well - but time and again some develop more serious, allergic reactions.

Recall: Sulphites can cause breathing difficulties, diarrhea and eczema

The extent of this can vary greatly from person to person: For example, the

mucous membranes in the entire mouth, nose and throat

as well as the

tongue can

swell and, in an emergency, impair breathing and

narrow the bronchi

.

An allergic reaction to sulfite can on the other hand by symptoms in

intestinal area gastrointestinal

express and

nausea, vomiting

and

diarrhea

cause.

Also,

itching, hives

and

eczema

can have an allergy consequence.

In the worst case scenario, it could also trigger life-threatening anaphylactic shock.
