Currently there are warnings against soup because of dangerous ingredients.
However, the manufacturer has not yet commented.

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 *.
