Sold at Netto: Meat manufacturer calls back sausage because of bacteria
The Westphalian Fleischwarenfabrik Stockmeyer GmbH has started a recall for the article "Stockmeyer Teewurst gross Rügenwalder Art". Health-endangering E. coli bacteria have been found in the sausage, which was sold net in the discount supermarket's markets.
Dangerous germs found in tea sausage
The Westphalian Fleischwarenfabrik Stockmeyer GmbH is recalling the article "Stockmeyer Teewurst gross Rügenwalder Art", 125 g (tea sausage in a mug), production batch with the consumption data 06.10.2018, 08.10.2018 and 09.10.2018. As the company reports, E. coli bacteria were found in official investigations. Among other things, the dangerous germs can cause severe gastrointestinal complaints. Some people may experience serious illnesses.
Sold in net markets
According to the information, the products were sold nationwide in stores by Netto Marken-Discount.
The repatriation from the markets is said to have already been initiated.
Customers who bought the product can return it to the retailer for a refund of the purchase price.
Severe illnesses possible
"These products should not be consumed," the company warns in the message.
A disease with the proven germs usually manifests itself within one week after infection with diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea and vomiting.
Infants, toddlers, seniors and people with a weakened immune system in particular can develop more severe illnesses with bloody diarrhea.
And according to the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL), five to ten percent of those affected, especially children of preschool age, develop "a serious clinical picture after the bowel symptoms (about a week after the onset of diarrhea)".
Fleischwarenfabrik Stockmeyer GmbH points out that people who have eaten the food affected by the recall and who develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical help and point out a possible VTEC infection.
"Preventing medical treatment without symptoms does not make sense," says the company. (ad)
