The crockery reminds of a massive expansion: due to the carcinogenic substance


Increase in formaldehyde levels: the discount extends to bamboo utensils

A few months ago, Tedi GmbH & Co. KG started a souvenir for bamboo dishes because product testing showed an increase in formaldehyde levels. This substance can have a negative impact on health. Now the callback has been extended.

It has found a greater number of toxic formaldehyde

A few months ago, Tedi GmbH & Co. KG announced that product testing has revealed an increase in toxic formaldehyde levels in several sheets, bowls, and bamboo glasses. Then these products were recovered. Now the callback has been extended.

The use of dishes is not recommended

You can find information about the previous callback here.

The removal of the bamboo plate of 25 cm (2 designs) has been extended to all article numbers and the sales period extended from 01.02.2018 to 08.04.2019.

"Product testing detected higher levels of formaldehyde. This substance can be dangerous for health, so it is not recommended to continue using dishes," he says in a customer's information.

According to the information, you can change the bamboo tableware for a reimbursement of the sale price of € 1.25 or € 1.50 or any other item in each store.

Carcinogenic substance

"Formaldehyde is harmful to health, it irritates the mucous membranes and can cause cancer to the nasopharynx when inhaled," the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) reported years ago.

In the recent past, not only Tedi, but also two furniture stores have removed or recovered toxic dishes.

And recently, the Saarage Consumer Center noted that even reusable bamboo vessels for them found harmful substances such as formaldehyde. (Ad)
