According to the head of the Sanitary, besides the erroneous information on the labels, there is also the danger of high microbiological contamination.

"A salmonella can cause anything from diarrhea, vomiting febree, however, in children, the elderly and immunocompromised individuals, signs and symptoms may progress to a severe, requiring hospitalization."
