If you want to grab chips at the moment, you have to be careful: there are a number of recalls going on.

20 varieties are already affected, manufacturers warn of poisoning.

Kassel/Berlin – Whether paprika, Salt & Vinegar or salted – chips are a popular snack.

In supermarket chains such as Aldi, Edeka, Lidl & Co., consumers have a wide range of products to choose from, and the shelves are full of them.

However, the downside of the supposed variety can be recalls, since numerous chip products are manufactured by large corporations: This is also the case in the case of a current recall campaign.

The recall was extended again on Friday (July 29).

The reason for the XXL recall is the massive discovery of herbal ingredients that can lead to symptoms of poisoning, for example.

These are so-called “tropane alkaloids”.

“Tropane alkaloids are a group of natural plant compounds.

They occur in certain field weeds from the nightshade family, such as datura [...], black henbane [...] and deadly nightshade [...]," explained the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety in this regard.

Chemical compound

tropane alkaloids

Eating the contaminated chips can cause health problems.

In particular, the symptoms of intoxication already mentioned are part of it.

Examples of the symptoms are visual disturbances, drowsiness, poor circulation and, in some cases, extreme dryness of the mucous membranes.

A general weakening of the organism, including the immune system, makes the body susceptible to further complaints.
