Bio-Planet recalls four vegetarian products

During a quality check by the supplier, hard pieces of grey plastic were found in the dough of four vegetarian products from the Bio-Planet service counter. Those pieces come from the supplier of frozen onions. As the pieces of plastic are rather small and can be sharp-edged, they can be dangerous when they are consumed.

In consultation with the FASFC (Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain) Bio-Planet has therefore decided to withdraw the products below from the shelves.

Sold in Bio-Planet's service counter:

  • hazelnut burger
  • millet-poppy seed burger
  • cheese burger
  • winter burger

Bio-Planet asks its customers not to consume the products and to return them to the store, where they will be refunded. Bio-Planet will take back all products, regardless of their shelf life or of the time of purchase.

For more information, customers can call 02 345 2345.
