They are sold in organic quality and are still harmful to health: corn chips sold in the branches of the organic supermarket chain Alnatura. The organic company has now recalled the corn chips for possible contamination and advises consumers: not to eat them under any circumstances, but to return the packages to the markets.

Alnatura Mais-Chips Natur and Alnatura Mais-Chips Paprika with expiration dates of August 9, 2022 to August 17, 2022 are concerned, a spokesperson for the Darmstadt-based company said Thursday. The goods have already been withdrawn from sale.

Proven tropane alkaloids: possible nausea, drowsiness and headache

The so-called tropane alkaloids were detected in a sample of corn peppers. Tropane alkaloids are natural compounds found in some plants such as henbane, thorny apple, and deadly nightshade. They can lead to temporary health problems such as nausea, sleepiness, and headaches.

As a precaution, buyers of the chips should therefore no longer eat them and can return products with the specified expiration date to their respective markets, where they will receive a replacement. Other product expiration dates and other Alnatura products are not affected by the recall.
