- 13 baked desserts recalled in the US.
- The products could be contaminated by pieces of plastic.
- Authorities warn which foods are affected.
A new recall was ordered in the United States after pieces of plastic were found in dozens of baked desserts. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published the official notice of the recall on its website.
Although it is common for microplastics to be present in many foods and beverages, they are often imperceptible and it is inevitable to ingest a certain amount of them. However, when consumers find large and visible pieces of plastic, a recall of the contaminated products is ordered and that is what what happened with Enjoy Life Natural Brands.
