However, the manufacturer has not yet commented.

Dortmund - Dangerous ingredients have been detected in a ready-to-eat soup.

The Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) therefore warns against consumption.

And there is more bad news for consumers who already have the affected product at home.

Warning of soup: Federal Office warns, official recall is missing

Specifically, sulfites were detected in the C'EUS brand potato soup.

These are salts and esters of the sulphurous acid H2SO3.

Sulphites are used as preservatives in various foods, including wine, dried fruit and potato products.

Sulphites have also caused recalls for olives *.

According to the BVL, the sulfite levels in the soup from C'EUS are greatly increased - there is a potential risk to health.

Especially people with hypersensitivity to sulfites can show intolerance reactions after consuming small amounts.

These include symptoms such as asthma, bronchospasm, anaphylactoid reactions, urticaria, and low blood pressure.

So far, however, there has been no official recall.

The manufacturer has not yet commented on the BVL's warning.

The situation is different with sausage, which is currently affected by a recall *.

Federal Office advises returning soup - but there is a catch

The following product is specifically affected by the warning:

  • Product: Potato soup


    Packaging unit: Roll with 420 grams


    Brand: C'EUS Best before


    date (MDH): 05.12.2021, 12.12.2021 and 19.12.2021 Batches


    : 36, 37 and 38

The BVL advises consumers to bring the product back to the respective shop - although no official recall has yet been issued.

Without this, consumers are dependent on the goodwill of the supermarket.

Because in stationary retail there is no statutory right of withdrawal, as reported by the consumer advice center (read more warnings and recalls * at RUHR24).

The

criticizes the lack of a recall.

“This does not guarantee that as many end users as possible will also receive this information,” it says there.
