Recall for sunflower oil

The Monolith group of companies is calling back “Salatoff” sunflower oil, unrefined, in 1 liter bottles with the expiration date of March 14, 2018. As the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety reports on its portal "", the maximum amount of polycyclic hydrocarbons in the product was exceeded. These substances can endanger health.

Ingestion is not recommended

"We advise against the consumption of this product as a precaution," the manufacturer wrote in a message.

According to the information, the oil was sold in markets of the Rewe chain in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia.

The affected goods can be returned in the respective market. The purchase price will be refunded.

Substances hazardous to health

"Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are carcinogenic, can change the genetic material and have properties that are toxic to reproduction," the Federal Environment Agency wrote on its website.

The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) also points out that PAHs have "harmful properties".

PAHs are repeatedly found in food. For example, Schneekoppe GmbH had to recall linseed oil last year after it had found increased PAH values. (ad)
