Meat products manufacturer calls Mettwurst back for Salmonella
Munzert Fleischwaren GmbH from Rehau in Bavaria has started a recall for a sausage. According to the company, it cannot be ruled out that the sausage contains salmonella. The product was sold in various Real stores, among others.
Munzert Fleischwaren GmbH from Rehau in Bavaria is recalling the item "Zwiebelmettwurst 200g". As the meat product manufacturer reports, it cannot be ruled out that salmonella may be in the sausage.
Sold among other things in real branches
According to a message published by the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety on its portal "lebensmittelwarnung.de", the goods affected by the recall are on the clip with the date 27.02. encoded.
According to the information, the goods were sold from 02.03.2020 in various Real branches at the fresh food counter in Northern Bavaria. Small quantities were sold from 28.02.2020 through the intermediaries Wurstwaren Satt in 90562 Kalchreuth and Wurschtladl in 95652 Waldsassen in northern Bavaria.
In addition, small quantities were also sold through the sales office in Rehau from February 28, 2020.
Ingestion is not recommended
"The products should not be consumed," warns the company. As the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) explains on its website, Salmonella are bacteria, the metabolic products of which can cause acute intestinal inflammation in humans, the so-called Salmonellosis.
A typical salmonella infection manifests itself within a few days through nausea, possibly vomiting, abdominal pain, fever and diarrhea. These symptoms can last for a few days. As a rule, the symptoms subside after a few days, even without medical treatment.
Infants, toddlers, seniors and people with a weakened immune system in particular can also develop more severe disease courses.
"People who have eaten this food and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical attention and point out a possible salmonella infection," said the company.
However, it does not make sense to seek medical care without symptoms. (ad)
