Pathogenic coli bacteria found in French cheese

The Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety and Lidl Germany are currently warning of a French cheese that is sold by Lidl. In an investigation, disease-causing coli bacteria were found in the product, which can sometimes cause severe diarrhea.

It is the cheese "Morbier AOP made with raw milk, 250 grams" from the French manufacturer "SA Perrin Vermot" with a best before date March 17, 2019. Furthermore, the cheese concerned is at lot number 042 and the identification number FR 25-155- 001 CE recognizable. The product should not be consumed due to the health risk.

The cheese was offered in almost all federal states

As Lidl Germany reports, the product affected by the recall was sold in all federal states with the exception of Bremen, Hamburg, Saarland and Schleswig-Holstein. Also only the above article is concerned. "For reasons of consistent consumer protection, Lidl Germany reacted immediately and removed the affected product from sale," Lidl writes in a customer information on the company's website. The cheese can be sold in all Lidl branches. Customers will then get the purchase price back without presenting the receipt.

Warning: some groups of people are particularly at risk

As the Federal Office and Lidl emphasize, customers should take this recall seriously. In particular, infants, toddlers, seniors and people with a weakened immune system can develop serious illnesses as a result of the E. coli bacteria (EHEC) that form Shiga toxin. According to the Robert Koch Institute, symptoms such as abdominal pain, fever, gastric colic, bloody diarrhea, nausea and vomiting can result from an EHEC infection. In particularly severe cases, the kidneys are also affected to such an extent that kidney failure occurs. In rare cases, this can even lead to the death of those affected. (vb)
