Food recalls before Christmas due to foreign smell, metal parts and bacteria
Food stocks have been increased in many German households in recent days. Guests are expected at Christmas and the long weekend means fewer shopping opportunities. The best thing for consumers to do is check their purchases again. Because shortly before Christmas, various food recalls were announced.
Chemical foreign smell and taste
The food retailer Aldi Süd is recalling the three types of pasta "Mafaldine", "Conchiglie" and "Eliche rigate" from the supplier Alimentitalia. The latter informed Aldi, "that the pasta article, which was sold as a promotional item as of December 3, 2016, was found to have a chemical odor and taste in the" Mafaldine "and" Conchiglie "varieties," says a press release. For precautionary reasons, all three varieties of the item will be recalled. The purchase price will be refunded.
Recall for vegan sausages
Furthermore, a recall campaign for the product "Vegan Winzi-Weenies" from the manufacturer Topas GmbH from Mössingen has been started. Batch 48216 with the best-before dates from 25/01/2017 to 24/02/2017 is affected.
"In the case of the affected products, it happened in one case that a metal part got into the product despite strict safety precautions," writes the producer.
"We think it is out of the question that there are other metal parts in the products of this batch, but we want to call back the entire batch as a precaution, especially after consulting the food inspection authority that has been activated."
The purchase price will be refunded - even without presentation of the receipt.
Health-threatening bacteria in cheese
And the French company "Le Fédou - Fromagerie de Hyelzas" is recalling various types of raw milk cheese due to suspected contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
The affected products can be viewed on the “Lebensmittelwarnung.de” portal of the federal states and the Federal Office of Consumer Protection.
“The food-borne Listeria monocytogenes infections lead to fever and / or headaches. The incubation period can be up to 8 weeks after consumption of the contaminated products, ”says the consumer information.
These symptoms may be more pronounced in children, immunocompromised people, pregnant women and the elderly. The products mentioned should not be eaten, but destroyed or returned to the point of sale. Consumers who have consumed the affected products and are experiencing corresponding symptoms are urged to see a doctor and point out the consumption of the cheese. (ad)
