Massive recall in France: this product contains poison, it can be fatal: it is animal feed

Product recalls follow each other. As is the case with Buitoni pizzas or sugar cubes or Kinder chocolates, it is better to be careful about what you buy for fear of falling on a dangerous lot. To avoid any disappointment, consumers are increasingly consulting the government side Rappel Conso. In the latest news, a food product intended for animals is the subject of a recall.

The parties concerned

Recall Conso informs us that the Bio Tonic food produced by HIPPO TOP is the subject of an urgent recall. The affected lots have the following number: N5161DDLU12025. The expiration date written on the boxes is December 1, 2025.

This is an animal feed jar weighing 500 g. These lots were sold throughout France between 1 July 2021 and 25 April 2022. This recall was initiated by the brand even after finding traces of arsenic.

The danger is real

Ingestion of contaminated products may cause diarrhea. Hippo Top advises anyone who has purchased this product not to give it to animals. If you still have some in your closets, bring them back to the store where you purchased them to make a replacement.

Fans of detective or historical novels are familiar with arsenic. This product was used in several killings between the Middle Ages and the 19th century. This poison has gained a bad reputation for taking life quickly and efficiently. This poison is also known to be undetectable.

It is odorless, tasteless and practically colorless. According to Planète Santé, a person who has ingested arsenic will have symptoms of poisoning that seem banal.

The Swiss magazine noted that the biggest threat of arsenic poisoning at the moment comes from the drinking water one ingests. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) has set a limit of 10 micrograms per day. liters of arsenic in water considered drinkable. This limit is not always complied with, especially in Asia.

Reminder Conso urges everyone to be vigilant. Avoid consuming the products affected by these recalls at all costs. Eating foods that contain bacteria called Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a deadly disease that attacks the nervous system.

Pregnant women, the elderly and the immunocompromised people are the most vulnerable to this disease. In case of fever or “fever, isolated or accompanied by headache and soreness”, contact a doctor immediately stating the type of product you have ingested.
