Listeria in Aldi salmon

A manufacturer has recalled two types of salmon from the trade because listeria bacteria were found during tests. The salmon was sold at the Aldi supermarket chain in Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland and Baden-Württemberg, among others. Goods already purchased should not be consumed due to the health risk.

Due to the suspicion of listeria contamination, traders have recalled two salmon products. The goods were sold in Aldi branches in Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland and Baden-Württemberg. As the dealer announced to "cewind Produktions- und Vertriebsgesellschaft" on Friday, the germ was "determined as part of an internal routine examination". The products affected are "Icewind Real Stremel Salmon Natural, 125 g" and "Icewind Real Stremel Salmon Pepper, 125 g".

The packs were sold in the Aldi-Süd regions of Eschweiler, Montabaur, Butzbach, Wittlich, Bingen, Mörfelden, Langenselbold, Bous, Aichtal and Murr. Goods already purchased can be returned to retailers for a refund of the purchase price. "It is our company policy to only market high-quality and safe food. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding of this measure. Other products from ICEWIND are not affected by this recall." Our free consumer hotline 0800-4443838 is available for further information.

Listeria bacteria can cause listeriosis
Listeria is a bacteria that may trigger the dangerous disease listeriosis. This infectious disease, which has been reportable in Germany since 2001, mainly affects people who have poor physical defense. In addition, pregnant women have an approximately 12-fold increased risk of developing this. The course of the disease is similar to that of a flu. Sick people initially suffer from diarrhea and severe abdominal pain and later often from fever, severe headache or even paralysis and dizziness. Because it can take up to two months between infection and illness, diagnosis of listeriosis is sometimes difficult. Therefore, the symptoms described should be taken seriously. If there is evidence, treatment with antibiotics is carried out.

Special care should be taken during pregnancy. But toddlers and patients with a weak immune system could also face serious health problems. It is therefore strongly advised not to consume the products, even if the trade emphasizes that the recall is a precaution. (sb)
