Rügenwalder Mühle recalls contaminated tea sausage

As the food manufacturer "Rügenwalder Mühle" announced on Tuesday, the Rügenwalder "Teewurst gross" was recalled. During routine checks, possible microbial contamination was found in one batch, the company said.

It is not advisable to eat the coarse tea sausage from the Rügenwalder mill. The Rügenwalder "Teewurst coarse" has been recalled from the trade. “A possible microbial contamination was found here during a regular routine check. We therefore advise against consumption, ”said the sausage manufacturer from Bad Zwischenhahn in Lower Saxony on Tuesday on the social media platform“ Facebook ”.

It is only the product Rügenwalder Teewurst coarse in a fresh cup with the batch number GR320501 and the best-before date 19 July 2013. However, other products of the company are not affected. Consumers could get more information on the Rügenwalder Mühle service phone on 04403 66 345. "The return from the store has already been arranged," the company said.

Contaminations in food such as tea sausage are repeated. Contamination of food occurs again and again during the production process. In December 2010, for example, we reported about Salmonella in the Rügenwalder Teewurst from the same manufacturer.

Food contaminated with Salmonella can cause so-called Salmonella enteritis (Salmonellosis) in humans. This is an infection of the gastrointestinal tract, which is associated with nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea. In healthy people, the disease usually runs without complications. However, the bacterial infection is dangerous for infants and young children, pregnant women and people with a weakened immune system. If symptoms such as fever, excessive fluid loss and rapid weight loss occur, those affected should be taken to a hospital immediately. (ag)
