What are the health risks of metal parts in food?
Metal waste can cause cuts and holes in the mouth or damage the teeth during chewing. If the metal part is swallowed, it may, depending on the shape and size, block the airways and cause breathing problems or even shortness of breath. In the worst case there is danger of suffocation. Swallowed metal parts can get stuck in the body and cause inflammatory processes. If it is pointed or sharp edges, internal bleeding is not excluded.
