Primus AB is recalling the following products:

"Classic Mini Set" (article number: 732690): This set consists of a saucepan (capacity: 1.4 litres) with a scale, a frying pan and a pot gripper.

“Classic Family Set” (article number: 732680): This set contains of Saucepans 1.7 litre, 2.1 litre and 2.9 litre all with scale, frying pan 20 cm wide and a pot gripper. Largest saucepan has its own fold away handle.

“Classic Set” (article number: 732340): This set contains of Saucepans 1.7 litre, 2.1 litre both with scale, frying pan and a pot gripper.

In the course of an examination of a planned sample of the cook set “Classic Mini Set”, the item has been found to release aluminium at a level that exceeds the specific release limit (“SRL”) stipulated in CM/Res (2013)9 (Council of Europe Resolution on metals and alloys used in food contact materials and articles) when liquids are heated in the vessels. That means that too much aluminium can be transferred to the food prepared in the saucepan or the frying pan.

As a precautionary measure, Primus AB is also recalling P732340 and P732680 to prevent the exposure of our customers to eventual health risks as an excess of the SRL of aluminium cannot be excluded.

When aluminium is ingested via food, its acute toxicity is low. In healthy people, most of the aluminium absorbed is excreted via the kidneys. However, in persons suffering from kidney disease, notably chronic renal insufficiency, this excretion process does not work well enough, meaning that aluminium can accumulate in the body. But even in healthy people, the light metal can accumulate in the body if it is absorbed frequently and regularly, especially in the skeletal system, muscles, kidneys, liver and brain. Once "stored" in the body, aluminium is only excreted very slowly. (Source:
