Urgent recall for corona mask at Müller: That's how dangerous the poison aniline is

Aniline

 is a clear, colorless to slightly yellowish, oily liquid and is considered an intermediate in organic chemistry.

It is used, among other things, as a raw material for the production of paints and synthetic fibers.

This is a

powerful blood poison

that prevents oxygen from being transported in the blood.

The poison can be absorbed through the respiratory tract, by swallowing or through contact with the skin.

In the case of mild poisoning, symptoms and signs in the form of

blue discoloration of the skin

and fingernails

,

dizzy spells

and

states of excitement

occur.

The consequences of a higher concentration can range from

headaches

and

persistent dizziness

to life-threatening impaired

consciousness

and

shortness of breath

.

Long-term symptoms of poisoning are expressed by a

feeling of weakness

and

loss of appetite

and can also

cause

bladder cancer

.

If the symptoms mentioned are found, owners of the

corona mask are

advised to consult a doctor as soon as possible.

Corona mask on call back: Müller customers can do that

Customers who bought the affected

corona mouthguard

in a

Müller

store can return it to any branch.

The purchase price will be reimbursed there even without presenting the receipt.

any

questions, you can
