Magnum ice creams recalled due to the presence of metal and plastic splinters, batches unsafe

The health authorities have requested the collection of Magnum ice creams due to the presence of metal and plastic splinters. It is a specific flavor that has ended up in the sights of the FSA, which has issued the alert for the recall of dangerous products. L'Irish Food Safety Authority has in fact made it known that the risk is only present for some batches of almond-flavoured Magnum packs.

All possible information has been disclosed to allow consumers to identify the compromised batches and thus avoid consuming them ice creams Dangerous magnums.

Dangerous ice creams, Magnum packages containing pieces of inedible material

THE Magnum ice creams subjected to recall belong to some lots intended for sale in Ireland. The starting point is the United Kingdom. These are the first data to check on the packaging to avoid consuming pieces of inedible and foreign materials such as metals and plastics.

Further information to understand which packages not to buy and not consume is that relating to the product itself. In fact only the packages of Magnum Almond 3 pieces have been subject to a recall by the Irish Food Safety Authority. The note, present on the page of Food Standards Agency (Fsa), is an emergency notice for “products unsafe to eat”.

THE lots interested parties have an expiration date of the end of December 2025, while as codes identifying the following numbers:

  • L3338
  • L3339
  • L3340
  • L3341
  • L3342

The motivation is clear: they can contain pieces of plastic and metal which make it dangerous to eat. The Unilever company responded sensitively to the problem and began recalling the products, with notices to the points of sale for the recall and attempts to contact customers who purchased the packs of Magnum Almond (Magnum almond almond) but for some reason they did not return it to the point of sale where it was purchased.

The damage of plastic and metal splinters in food products

The warning note from the food safety authority was expected. Metal and plastic splinters in food are downright dangerous. The urgency of communication is proven by the action of withdrawal of products undertaken by Unilever, which hopes to reach customers before ingesting unsafe products. This is because pieces of metal and plastic can cause injuries to the internal organs and represent a risk of suffocation in adults, but especially in children.

Suffocation occurs, according to medical sources, when a splinter or other object partially or completely blocks the airway. While for adults the object must be larger in size, for children an even smaller piece of plastic or metal is enough to risk suffocation.

Furthermore, an adult is capable of unblocking the airway independently through the cough. Alternatively, if forcing the cough doesn't work, you can try back blows or abdominal thrusts. With children these practices are not recommended or to be carried out with caution. It is the NHS itself that warns about the use of abdominal thrusts and back blows on children or pregnant women.
