Many different egg products are recalled
The Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety and the company Eifrisch Marketing GmbH & Co.KG are currently warning about possible salmonella poisoning, which consumers could claim by eating various eggs from the supermarkets Netto, Lidl, Aldi , REWE and Kaufland. Salmonella was detected in a large egg producer during official investigations.
For reasons of preventive consumer protection, the company Eifrisch Vermarktung GmbH & Co.KG recalls its eggs, which have been distributed in many different markets. This applies to all barn eggs with the best dates between December 19, 2018 and December 24, 2018 inclusive and press number 2-DE0351691.
Which eggs from which market are exactly interested?
The following list shows concretely what are the brands from which the supermarket is affected by the manufacturer:
- Net Discount Trademarks: "From the village 10 fresh eggs L-M from Bodenhaltung" – distributed in the federal states of Bremen and Lower Saxony.
- Lidl: "Fresh eggs 10er L-M from land farming" – distributed in the federal states of Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate.
- Aldi North: "Hofland 6er XL eggs for soil breeding" – distributed in the regional companies Horst and Großbeeren.
- REWE: "REWE Eggs Best Choice 6er XL from Bodenhaltung" – distributed in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Brandenburg.
- Kaufland: "My favorite egg 6er XL from Bodenhaltung" – distributed in Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia.
Consumption is strongly discouraged
According to the manufacturer, the affected products have already been withdrawn from the sale. Anyone who has already purchased the above items should not consume them. Instead, eggs can be returned to the supermarket where they were purchased. The purchase price will be reimbursed.
How dangerous are salmonella?
According to the Federal Center for Health Education (BzgA), a Salmonella infection manifests itself within a few days after consumption. May cause discomfort such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting and mild fever. Symptoms usually last several days and then resolve. Infants, children, the elderly and immunocompromised individuals, however, may develop severe and protracted disease models. The continuous loss of fluids and body salts therefore threatens the circulatory collapse or renal failure, which in rare cases can even lead to death.
Should you go to the doctor if you ate eggs?
The Federal Office of Consumer Protection (BVL) advises people who have eaten their eggs and show serious or persistent complaints about medical help. The doctor should be advised of a possible salmonella poisoning. However, if you do not develop symptoms after eating, you do not need to go to the doctor. A preventive medical examination is not reasonable according to BVL. (Vb)
