Colruyt And Collectandgo Recall Tortilla Preparation Tortiya Of 5 Senses

Checks by the FASFC showed that the allowed amount of ESBO (Epoxidized Soybean Oil) was exceeded in the Torti-Ya! tortilla preparation based on potatoes and onions of the brand 5 Senses (glass jar of 350 g).Epoxidized soybean oil is used as a plasticizer to make the coating of the jar's lid more flexible. It is not used as an ingredient. Consuming the tortilla preparation will therefore not cause acute toxic symptoms.However, a repeated intake of too high ESBO amounts can negatively impact some organs, such as the lever, kidneys and uterus.  That is why Colruyt and Collect&Go are removing the product from the shelves as a precaution. They ask their customers not to consume the product and to return it to the store. The product will then be refunded.Meanwhile, all stores have removed the products from the shelves.Description of the product:Sold at Colruyt and Collect&Go5 Senses Torti-Ya!Tortilla preparation based on potatoes and onion 350 gBest before date: 05/2019Article number: 23114Batch number: 080140617Sold from March 2015 until December 2015For more information, customers can call the telephone number 02 360 10 40.Contact:Jan DEROMPress officer Colruyt GroupTel.: 0473 92 45 10FAQ:What is ESBO?ESBO or Epoxidized Soybean Oil is used as a plasticizer to make the coating of the jar's lid more flexible.
