Recall for almonds due to the danger of salmonella


Recall: net almond kernels contaminated with salmonella

August Töpfer & Co. (GmbH & Co.) KG from Hamburg has started a recall for “Clarky's Almonds in their natural state” in the 200 gram pack. The product that was sold at the food discount store Netto may be contaminated with Salmonella.

August Töpfer & Co. (GmbH & Co.) KG is calling back the article "Almonds completely natural" of the Clarky brand (200g) with the best before date (best before date) 05.10.2020 and with the lot number L 41766. This information can be found on the back of the packaging. The product was offered by Netto Marken-Discount in parts of North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate.

Health impairments possible

"It cannot be ruled out that there are salmonella-contaminated almond kernels in individual packs of the affected article" Clarky's almonds left completely natural "," says a press release that the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) on its portal "food warning. de ”has published.

The affected goods have already been taken out of sale. Customers who have bought the corresponding product can return it to their shops without a presentation of the sales receipt, upon reimbursement of the purchase price.

The almonds should not be eaten because: "Consumption could lead to health problems," the company writes.

If necessary, seek medical help

"Salmonella are bacteria whose metabolic products can trigger acute intestinal inflammation, salmonellosis," explains the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) on its website.

As the Federal Center for Health Education (BZgA) writes on its portal "infektionsschutz.de", sudden diarrhea, headaches and stomach aches, general malaise and occasionally vomiting are common symptoms of Salmonella disease. There is often a mild fever. The complaints often last for several days and then subside.

Infants, young children, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system are particularly at risk. These groups of people may experience longer and more severe illnesses.

“People who have eaten this food and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical attention and point out a possible Salmonella infection. It does not make sense to seek preventive medical treatment without symptoms, ”writes August Töpfer & Co. (GmbH & Co.) KG. (ad)
