The company Josef Maier GmbH & Co. KG has started a recall for sausages. The reason for this measure: The lack of labeling of an allergen. The butcher shop Gustav Winterhalter is also recalling meatballs because listeria was found in them.
The Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) reports on its portal “www.lebensmittelwarning.de” about the recall of sausages from Josef Maier GmbH & Co. KG. Another message discusses the recall of meatballs from the Gustav Winterhalter butcher shop.
Allergen not marked
Josef Maier GmbH & Co. KG from Bad Wörishofen (Bavaria) is informing about the recall of the wild boar bratwurst item, scalded and frozen in a 400 gram pack. The affected batches and best-before dates (MHDs) can be viewed in a press release published on “www.lebensmittelwarning.de”.
According to the information, the spice mixture used contained the allergen mustard, which is not listed in the list of ingredients. For people with a mustard allergy, consuming the product can have a health-endangering effect, for example triggering an allergic shock.
According to the company, the affected item was sold nationwide. The sausages can be returned to all points of sale by people with a mustard allergy. The purchase price will be refunded.
Furthermore, the butcher Gustav Winterhalter from Elzach in Baden-Württemberg is recalling the item “Frikadellen 4-pack” with the batch number 29323 and the best-before date (BBD) November 3rd, 2023.
The reason for this recall: detection of Listeria (Listeria monocytogenes). An infection with this pathogen can be accompanied by, among other things, flu-like symptoms such as fever and muscle pain or vomiting and diarrhea.
Customers are asked not to eat the affected meatballs but to throw them away. The purchase price will be refunded.
The goods were sold exclusively through the manufacturer’s branches in Baden-Württemberg. (ad)
