There are currently recalls for various types of sausage. A pathogen has been detected in one of the products and others may contain broken glass. The goods should not be consumed.
The Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) reports on its portal “www.lebensmittelwarning.de” about two recalls for different types of sausage. One recall concerns a salami and the other various meat and sausage products.
If symptoms occur, seek medical attention
For reasons of preventive consumer protection, the company G. Pfitscher GmbH from Italy is recalling the product “Best Moments” deer salami 60g, with the best-before date (BBD) January 5th, 2024 and the lot number 42234.
As stated in a letter, this recall is purely precautionary because the pathogen Escherichia coli VTEC was detected in individual products during quality controls.
These germs can lead to diarrhea and nausea. We strongly advise against consuming the affected product.
Consumers who have consumed the above product and are suffering from the symptoms described are asked to consult a doctor immediately. A health risk cannot be ruled out with absolute certainty.
Customers can return the product to the respective store and receive a refund of the purchase price, even without presenting the receipt.
Various glass jars
Furthermore, the Fleischerei & Direktvermarktung Schicketanz GbR from Grimma, Saxony, is recalling various types of sausage because there could be glass splinters in them.
According to the BVL, the products affected by this recall are “Homemade minced pork cooked”, “Homemade liver sausage”, “Homemade blood sausage”, “Jagdwurst” and “Sülzwurst”. These are glass cans of 150g and 200g each with a best before date of March 31, 2023.
Sales took place exclusively in Saxony. The glasses can be returned. They will be replaced or the purchase price will be refunded. (ad)
