Aluminum may enter the food chain as contaminant. Pieces of metal like aluminum are not digestible and may pose hazards to human health. Any food discovered or suspected for aluminum contamination should be recalled immediately:
Warburtons has recalled some packs of its own-brand 6 Crumpets with a ‘best before’ date of 22 November 2010 and 23 November 2010, because the product might contain small pieces of aluminium. The Agency has issued a Product Information Recall Notice advising consumers not to eat the product.
