A salami is currently being recalled because listeria was found in it. These bacteria can lead to various health problems. We strongly advise against consuming the affected product.
According to a statement published by the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) on its portal “www.lebensmittelwarning.de”, the Ostseeblick ostrich farm from Hohenfelde (Schleswig-Holstein) is recalling a salami because listeria, which is harmful to health, was detected in the sausage .
Do not consume affected goods
Affected by the recall is the ostrich salami (neutral, garlic and pepper), packaging unit: plastic casing, clipped on both sides, plastic bag and the best before date (BBD) December 10, 2023.
The reason for this measure: Listeria monocytogenes was detected in the affected products.
Customers who have purchased goods with the affected best before date are strongly advised not to consume the sausage. Please note that the purchase price will be refunded.
Severe courses of the disease are possible
As the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL) explains on its website, an infection with listeria, listeriosis, is usually inconspicuous in healthy adults or has a harmless course with flu-like symptoms such as fever and muscle pain or vomiting and diarrhea.
Severe, sometimes fatal forms of listeriosis occur in certain risk groups, such as older or immunocompromised people and infants.
An infection with L. monocytogenes represents a particular risk for pregnant women because an infection can lead to stillbirth, premature birth and neonatal listeriosis or to meningitis and sepsis (blood poisoning) in the unborn child. (ad)
