The company Agrargenossenschaft Moorgrund eG, Landfleischerei Möhra has started a recall for sausages. The reason for this measure: Two different pathogens were detected during a check. Consuming the products is not recommended.
As the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) reports on its portal “lebensmittelwarning.de”, the agricultural cooperative Moorgrund eG, Landfleischerei Möhra, is recalling sausages from Bad Salzungen, Thuringia. In one case due to contamination with Salmonella and in the other due to contamination with Escherichia Coli.
Salmonella and Escherichia Coli
According to a letter from the company, the “Knackwurst Halb & Halb” with YELLOW clip and green threads (production date: September 15, 2023, batch number: 37/23b) is being recalled. A microbial contamination with salmonella was determined from a random sample as part of the company’s own internal control, it says. Sales are limited to the federal state of Thuringia.
According to another letter, the “Knackwurst Halb & Halb” with a GREEN clip and green threads (production date: August 30, 2023, batch number: 35/23a) is also being recalled. Here, a microbial contamination with Escherichia Coli was detected from a sample as part of the official inspection. The goods were only sold in the manufacturer’s branches in the Wartburg district (Thuringia).
Customers who have purchased one of the products can return it to your branch in exchange for fresh products, even without presenting a receipt.
Consumption is strongly discouraged
We strongly advise against consuming the products from the specified product batches.
Salmonella infection manifests itself within a few days of infection with symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain and occasionally vomiting and a slight fever. The symptoms usually go away on their own after several days.
In particular, infants, small children, senior citizens and people with weakened immune systems can develop more severe illnesses.
An illness caused by VTEC bacteria usually manifests itself within a week of infection with diarrhea and abdominal cramps. Infants, small children, senior citizens and people with weakened immune systems in particular can develop more severe illnesses with bloody diarrhea.
Rarely, especially in small children, acute kidney failure can occur in a second attack a few days after the onset of diarrhea.
People who have eaten any of these foods and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical attention and report a possible VTEC infection or a possible Salmonella infection. However, it does not make sense to seek preventive medical treatment without symptoms. (ad)
