Salmonella hazard: Aldi ground hazelnut kernels are recalled
Ground hazelnuts that Aldi has in their range could be contaminated with Salmonella and are therefore being recalled. 200-gram packs of the "Trader Joe’s" brand are affected. The bacteria can cause diarrhea and other health problems.
Recall for ground hazelnut kernels
An import-export company from Hamburg informed in a press release about a public recall of goods: "For reasons of preventive consumer protection, Heinrich Brüning GmbH is recalling the article" Trader Joe`s Ground Hazelnut Kernels "in a 200 gram package," it says . Accordingly, only the goods with the best-before dates (BBD) printed on the back of the packaging are affected on 01.08.2017 and 02.08.2017.
According to the company, the goods concerned were sold at Aldi Nord exclusively in parts of Hamburg, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saxony-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein and Thuringia.
Since salmonella was found in a single sample of this article as part of a self-inspection, the article should "no longer be consumed or used". Further articles and additional best before dates are not affected. Affected goods can be returned against reimbursement of the purchase price - even without presentation of the receipt.
Ham sausages are also contaminated with bacteria
On the portal "Lebensmittelwarnung.de" of the federal states and the Federal Office for Consumer Protection, there is also a warning about another product that is available from Aldi. Accordingly, "Harz ham sausages" (in the manner of a raw Krakauer) from the Gifhorn company Gmyrek are also being recalled for Salmonella.
The sausages of the "Goldkrone" brand in 350-gram packs with a best-before date of 07.11.2016 and the batch number GMYH16S0415 were in the companies Salzgitter and Hann. Münden on sale at Aldi Nord.
A recall campaign for salmonella had also recently been launched for eggs from the Brandlhof company.
Salmonella can be a health hazard
Salmonella are bacteria that can cause various diseases in humans - especially in the gastrointestinal area. After eating contaminated food, symptoms such as abdominal pain, fever, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting can occur. Such symptoms can occur especially in small children, people with weakened immune systems and the elderly. (ad)
