Allergic reactions are not to be trifled with.

Athletes should be careful when using leather gloves: a recall has been issued.

Munich – Athletes usually attach particular importance to their health.

However, athletes who have bought fitness gloves from the Chiba Gloves brand should be careful.

The manufacturer launched a recall.

The reason: the product has an increased chromium content and can therefore trigger allergic reactions.

Recall of fitness glove: increased chromium VI content

The Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety warns against using the product.

The glove "Fitness glove 40400 Power" for men is affected.

The affected products have the production lot number F-3288.

Customers will find the corresponding marking inside the glove.

The manufacturer Chiba Gloves also points out that only gloves with white leather are affected by the recall.

The same product in black is made of a different material, according to a statement.

For reasons of precautionary consumer protection, the company took the white leather gloves off the market.

Customers who have already purchased these are asked to send them back or return them to their seller.

Online customers will be informed directly, the company announced.

Products of the Chiba Gloves brand are sold, for example, at the sports retailer Bergzeit, at Kaufland or on Amazon.

"In the event of a return, the free and immediate exchange for an equivalent replacement or purchase price is offered," writes the manufacturer.

Leather gloves contain chrome VI: Widespread allergy in Germany

As the Federal Office for Risk Assessment (BFR) informs, chromium VI allergies are among the most common allergies in Germany.

The BFR expects more than half a million people to be affected.

An allergy typically manifests itself as a rash or eczema at the site of contact.

The analytical detection limit for chromium VI in clothing is and three mg per kg of leather.

Chromium VI can be found in paints and varnishes, leather and wood preservatives, among other things.

Since the substance is not recognizable in products for consumers, it is often difficult for allergy sufferers to avoid contact.

Numerous supermarkets such as Rewe and Edeka recently had to recall a grilled sausage because it could trigger allergic reactions: the manufacturer had forgotten to label an ingredient to which many customers are allergic.
