Ethylene oxide

is a colorless, extremely flammable gas with a sweet odor.

It is used, among other things, as a disinfectant for food, organic insulation materials and textile fibers.

Ethylene oxide is toxic and carcinogenic if inhaled.

The first symptoms of poisoning may be headache, dizziness and nausea, and vomiting.

In higher doses it comes to twitching, convulsions and finally to a coma.

Only recently was information about a candy recalled - consumption can have dangerous consequences.

The product was sold almost all over Germany.
