Recall: 5 Senses Torti-Ya! sold at Colruyt and Collect&Go

Halle, Belgium, 2016-1-7 — /EPR Retail News/ — 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.
