Certain bottlings of natural mineral water from the Dachsberg source should not be used to prepare baby food. There were quality deviations with regard to the chlorate content.
Quality deviations with regard to the chlorate content
The portal "Lebensmittelwarnung.de" of the federal states and the Federal Office of Consumer Protection is currently warning of mineral water from Bavaria. According to a press release from Dreiflüsse Getränke- und Logistikcenter GmbH in Hutthurm (Passau district), "there were occasional bottlings of natural mineral water from the Dachsberg source in Hutthurm with a best before date until December 22, 2018" to "quality deviations with regard to the chlorate content".
Do not use to prepare baby food
"As a precaution, these waters should not be used for the preparation of baby food," it continues.
Long-term exposure to chlorate in food, especially in drinking water, is potentially harmful to children's health, especially those with mild or moderate iodine deficiency, according to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
According to the experts, however, the total intake of a single day - even in the range of the highest estimated intake levels - exceeds the recommended level of safety for consumers of all ages. (ad)
