A statement from SA Health says the cause of the contamination is currently being investigated, and while there is no evidence of a deliberate act at this stage, there are still major health concerns for customers.
'The concern with a calculator is that it contains a button battery which, if swallowed, can cause serious injury or even death,' Acting Chief Public Health Officer Dr Chris Lease, revealed.
He said the recall was precautionary at this stage and there had been no reports of harm or injury.

The recall includes more than EIGHT types of hot cross buns purchased from Pasadena Foodland in South Australia, with authorities warning that they may cause injury if consumed.

The brand's 500g packs of Premium Hot Cross Buns are also included - as are any packs and weights of the Easter treat which were packed on April 7, 2019.
Says Food Standards Australia: ‘Chapley Group is conducting a recall of the above products that were produced on 07 April only. Any products made prior to or after this date are not at risk. The products have been available for sale at Pasadena Foodland in SA.
‘The recall is due to the presence of foreign matter (plastic). Food products containing foreign matter may cause injury if consumed.’
