Bio-Planet recalls fermented Karma Kombucha drink 500 ml

In consultation with the FASFC (federal agency for the safety of the food chain), Bio-Planet decided to recall the fermented Karma Kombucha drinks Ginger and Pomegranate Boost 500 ml.

An internal check by the manufacturer revealed that the caps of some bottles are not strong enough and could pop due to the pressure in the bottle. In the meantime, the products have been removed from the shelves.

We invite customers, who have bought this product, to open the bottles cautiously outside and to return the empry bottle or their receipt to Bio-Planet. The product will be refunded.
