Diarrhea danger! Consumer advocates warn of a fruit salad from the supermarket

Fruit is healthy – but the same does not apply necessarily for ready-made fruit salads from supermarkets, discount stores and bakery shops, such as a sample of the NDR-the consumer magazine, “market” shows. The consumer advocate participated in seven products – with an alarming result.
