Plant poison in soy flakes by Rossmann

As part of a self-assessment, tropane alkaloids were detected in the product. They are natural ingredients of certain poisonous plants. For example, they are found in henbane, thorn apple and deadly cherry. Contamination with these weeds can occur during harvest. A subsequent cleaning of the harvest is not always possible.

The consumption of products contaminated with tropane alkaloids can lead to temporary health problems such as visual disturbances, dilated pupils, drowsiness, dry mouth or fatigue.

According to the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), there is a health risk in particular for infants and young children due to tropane alkaloids.

EnerBio products should not be consumed

Rossmann asks not to eat the soy flakes. They can be returned to one of the branches. The purchase price would then be reimbursed.

For more information, you can contact the drugstore’s customer service on 0800/76776266 (Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.).
