The Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (Aesan) has issued a food alert due to the possible presence of plastic fragments in a well-known bread sold in supermarkets in our country. In particular, this is the 100% Dextrin Traditional Bread from the Santiveri brand.
According to the information available, the distribution of this product is throughout the national territory. The agency under the Ministry of Consumer Affairs recommends that people who have this bread in their homes avoid eating it.
AESAN was informed, through the Coordinated System for Rapid Information Exchange (Sciri), of an alert notification sent by the health authorities of the Community of Madrid about the possible presence of a plastic fragment of this product.
