Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

This is the second time I search something and the first I'm confronted with is a recall of a product.
This time it is cookies from Migros. Scroll, see the picture and you don't need to speak German.

I never realized this happens quite frequently and thought it might be worth a thread.

I was gonna adapt the title of my minipic thread but couldnt. Mods you're welcome to merge.

Re: Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

Migros products get recalled very often... I wonder if it's them having quality issues, or if the other brands are hiding their mishandlings

Re: Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

Can contain metal pieces of up to 2cm.

Well somebody should review their production process, all those lines should have detectors/scanners at the end to avoid such disasters. If those did not detect anything it is likely that during a cleaning of the line somebody noticed a machine is missing something and they have no clue where it went so they call back the whole batch, still this should not be allowed to happen, or parts have been scraping each other and the metal left as "dust" to small to be detected and normally innocent (but who knows) The lines I worked on had their detectors always calibrated before a batch would leave the factory.

Also it was hell if the detector found something, then the whole line would be inspected/opened/taken apart until we found a spot where for example a tiny 3mm piece of metal would be missing. (that was babyhood, on which they are paranoid like hell for something happening)

Re: Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

An an FYI on the general subject, here are two official product recall websites to check now and again:

Recalls on foodstuffs, from the BLV:
https://www.blv.admin.ch/blv/de/home...warnungen.html

Other product recalls and safety information:
https://www.konsum.admin.ch/bfk/de/h...rmationen.html

Ktipp lists current recalls as well, another good reason to subscribe.

This is specifically about 1 litre bottles, with the article number 130757000000 and expiry date 3rd November 2018.

Re: Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

More correctly called 'biscuits' in British English. The tangled web of language goes something like this, as I understand it:

- What they call cookies, we call biscuits
- What we call cookies, they call cookies
- What they call biscuits, we call scones
- What they call scones is simply an abomination...

Re: Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

Google translated (with a little editing) and a pic of the product:

Migros is recalling M-Classic chicken breast slices in a duo pack. The affected product is frozen and has a sell-by date of 06.2019. The lot number is L-0026981975. The two packs, which are banded together, each weigh 350 grams. The price for the product is 6.85 francs.

The product may contain small pieces of metal. A health risk can not be excluded.

The poultry breast slices could be bought throughout Switzerland at the Migros branches and at LeShop.

Migros asks people not to consume the product. Instead, it should be returned to the store. The selling price will be refunded.

Nope, not in my stock. Gave-up buying anything but veggies from Migros since the last 2 fish recalls. Even then, I only buy unpacked veggies from there as baby frogs and various insect life is found in it far too often for my taste.

Re: Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

Just saw something similar has occurred in the US. Couldn't help wondering if there's any connection.

Yeah, I know. Isn't it amazing how the population that speaks English manages not to understand eachother on regular basis? And yet they think it should be the world's common language. ROFL.

You guys rebuilding the Tower of Babel?

Migros calls back cut chicken-breast. Do not eat it, it hasn't been cooked well enough.

Re: Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

There I was looking for spelt flour (good girl me) to find out Migros recalls ready made chicken nuggets and chicken crispy ( who eats that?).

Reason: They could possibly contain wheat and gluten, so if you have a problem with those things, do not consume them.
