Recall from Lidl: Grated Gouda cheese can contain plastic parts

The Dutch manufacturer Delicateur has started a recall of the product "Milbona Gouda grated young, matured at least 7 weeks, 250g". According to the company, it cannot be excluded that there are plastic parts in the goods. The cheese was sold at Lidl.

The Dutch manufacturer Delicateur calls back the product "Milbona Gouda young grated, matured at least 7 weeks, 250g" with the best before date (best before date): 23.03.2020, the lot number: 893839538051060191224 and the identity code: NL Z 0507 i EG.

Cheese can contain blue plastic foreign bodies

"It cannot be excluded that blue plastic foreign bodies are contained in the product concerned," says a customer information published by the discount company Lidl on its website.

As the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety reports on its portal "", the cheese was sold at Lidl Germany in the federal states of Hesse, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate.

The affected product can be returned in all Lidl branches. The purchase price will be reimbursed, even without presentation of the receipt.

Under no circumstances should the product be consumed

"Because of the possible risk of injury when consumed, customers should pay attention to the recall and never consume the product," the company warns.

Foreign bodies in food can cause many different injuries and complaints. Depending on the size, nature and material, they can cause wounds in the mouth and throat when chewing.

If they are large enough, swallowed plastic parts can block the esophagus or digestive organs, among other things.

If smaller parts remain in the body, these can sometimes trigger inflammation. Internal injuries cannot be ruled out either. (ad)
