They are sold in organic quality and are still harmless to health: corn chips sold in branches of the Alnatura organic supermarket chain. The organic company has now withdrawn the corn chips due to potential contamination and has advised consumers: Do not eat them under any circumstances, but bring the packs back to markets.
A spokesman for the company based in Darmstadt said on Thursday that Alnatura Mise-Chips Natur and Alnatura Mise-Chips Paprika are affected by the best dates from August 9, 2022 to August 17, 2022. Goods have already been withdrawn from sale.
Tropane alkaloids proven: nausea, drowsiness and headache possible
So-called tropane alkaloids were found in a sample of corn chip peppers. Tropane alkaloids are natural compounds found in some plants such as henbane, prickly apple and deadly nightshade. They can cause temporary health problems such as nausea, drowsiness, and headaches.
As a precaution, buyers of chips should no longer eat them and may return products with specified best-in-first dates to the respective markets, where they will receive a replacement. Other best-to-date products and other Alnatura products are not affected by the recall.
