Contamination by ethylene oxide, the withdrawal is triggered for these batches of the multivitamin Polase Difesa Winter

Don't store avocado like this: it's dangerous

New alarm linked to the contamination of ethylene oxide, the toxic and carcinogenic pesticide, banned for some time by the European Union. After the withdrawal of two well-known dietary supplements, a third took place in a few days. In this case it is a few batches of the multivitamin Polase Defense Winter, also sold in supermarkets Bennet, Coop and Cadoro.

The precautionary reminder due "to the presence of ethylene oxide in concentrations higher than the permitted limits" was ordered by the Ministry of Health and concerns three batches of the supplement sold in packs of 14 and 28 bags.

Here is the sheet with the lots affected by the recall:
