CEPEWA GmbH informs about a recall via “ProductWarning.eu”. The company announces that increased levels of lead and nickel have been found in the lid of the item “Pear Drinking Glass”.

Lead can cause chronic poisoning and is stored in the body through the ingestion of even the smallest amounts. Consequences of the poisoning can include tiredness, headaches and defects in blood formation and the nervous system.

Nickel is one of the most common allergy triggers. Accordingly, alloys that come into contact with nickel are rarely nickel-plated. Nickel is only used to a limited extent in consumer goods in the European Union.
