Tofu recall: No information about possible health consequences of typhoon tofu
Tofu Spinacia – a soy product seasoned with spinach, nutmeg and garlic – is affected. As the manufacturer explains in a press release, there is a risk of metal in the tofus. "It cannot be ruled out that there are occasional metal parts in the product," says Taifun-Tofu. Consumption is therefore strongly discouraged – the consumer advice centre also warns.
Whether the consumption would have health consequences, the manufacturer, which is known for its variety of vegan products, does not write. According to the consumer advice center, frequent ingestion of metals, such as aluminum foil, can damage the kidneys and bones. In addition, it can lead to developmental disorders.
