Customers who have affected products at home are asked not to consume them.

"Our German supplier of organic barley grass powder reports that he recently found E. coli (VTEC) germs in his goods from 2015 and cannot rule out that he delivered parts of them to us in the past year," the two manufacturers explain Recall of goods in corresponding notices. In view of a possible risk of infection, consumption is not advisable. The products can be returned to the manufacturers for replacement.
