Follow-up :
Reference Follow-up from Date Follow-up type Info
add01 Italy 26/08/2013 withdrawal of original notification x ray installation device is perfectly in operation along the production line; it reveals 2 mm steal fragment and 3 mm iron fragment, and so forth other kind of foreign bodies (e.g. plastic, stones, glass, other metallic fragments). One metallic object, 2 mm large, had been inserted in one final pack of ice-creams. That object was automatically expelled from line, after signalled. Moreover foreign object found in single ice-cream does not belong neither to machinery nor to some instrument in use along the manufacturing line. Withdrawal of notification is therefore requested.
