E. coli bacteria: manufacturer recalls food supplements
Due to a bacterial load, Hanoju Deutschland GmbH is recalling several food supplements. E-coli bacteria that can be harmful to health have been found in wheatgrass powder products.

Health-threatening germs in food supplements
So-called superfoods and nutritional supplements are enjoying growing popularity, but only recently have the experts in the consumer magazine "Öko-Test" reported that they have found harmful substances in almost all products. Now Hanoju Deutschland GmbH, a specialist in superfoods and nutritional supplements, is recalling various products due to harmful germs.

Recall for wheatgrass powder
As reported on the portal "Lebensmittelwarnung.de" by the federal states and the Federal Office of Consumer Protection, Hanoju Deutschland GmbH has launched a recall campaign for organic wheatgrass tablets, organic wheatgrass powder, wheatgrass powder and organic body cleaning drink powder. The company from Damme in Lower Saxony writes on its website that the product concerned "must not be consumed due to microbiological contamination from E. coli (VTEC - O145)". This pathogen can cause diarrhea, fever, nausea and vomiting.

Coli bacteria in tap water
According to the information, batch numbers 530919 and 525816 in different packaging units are affected for organic wheatgrass tablets. And with organic wheatgrass powder and wheatgrass powder, the batch number 15-0114W-1 and with organic body cleaning powder, the BK-A00215. Unfortunately, food is contaminated with such germs. Sometimes they can even be found in drinking water. In parts of Hesse, only a few weeks ago, people were warned of infectious coli bacteria in tap water. At that time, authorities warned not to drink the water in the affected regions without first boiling it. (ad)
