Recall for salmonella-contaminated sausage started
Salmonella contaminated sausage is recalled. Höll Feine Fleisch- und Wurstwaren GmbH has launched a recall campaign for several types of sausage due to salmonella contamination. The meat and sausage manufacturer Höll warned in a recent announcement that the sausages sold through the discount supermarket Lidl should not be consumed, since there are serious health consequences.
After finding salmonella in several sausages from Höll Feine Fleisch- und Wurstwaren GmbH, Lidl Germany reacted immediately and removed all affected articles from the market. The products already sold should in no way be consumed, but returned to the Lidl branches, the meat and sausage manufacturer Höll said on Thursday. Since salmonella can cause significant health problems, consumers should urgently follow the instructions.
Several types of sausage recalled because of salmonella contamination The recall campaign of the meat and sausage manufacturer Höll from Saarbrücken affected several types of sausage that were potentially contaminated with salmonella. The bacteria were detected in the article "Höll Schinkenknacker, top quality, 300g" with the expiration dates of July 12, 2011, July 28, 2011 and August 01, 2011, the company said. In addition, “Höll Schinken Snackis Paprika, top quality, 300g” with the best-before dates of July 8, 2011, July 10, 2011 and July 24, 2011 are also affected. In addition, the Salmonella was also found in the "Höll Schinkenknacker Paprika, top quality, 300g" with a shelf life up to August 28, 2011. All items were sold through the Lidl supermarket chain and can also be returned to them, the meat and sausage manufacturer said on Thursday. Even without a receipt, the purchase price would be reimbursed in the various Lidl branches.
Health consequences of a Salmonella infection It is in any case not advisable to consume the sausage types contaminated with Salmonella, as severe gastric and intestinal diseases threaten, warned Höll Feine Fleisch- und Wurstwaren GmbH. Symptoms of a salmonella infection (including salmonellosis) usually include fever, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea in the initial stages. In the further course, vomiting diarrhea (gastroenteritis) can lead to dehydration (dehydration) of the organism with additional health consequences, experts warn. Without medical treatment, there is a risk of serious circulatory problems, seizures or, at worst, kidney failure. In addition, salmonellosis can also trigger the infectious disease typhoid, which in turn can cause significant health problems. Overall, the risk of a salmonella infection should therefore not be underestimated, the meat and sausage manufacturer Höll also emphasized as part of the current recall campaign. (fp)
