A popular cheese product from Lidl can cause serious health damage if consumed.

Now the discount giant is reacting and extending the recall to all of the manufacturer's products.

  • Lidl

    has to

    initiate

    the

    recall *

    for a

    cheese product

    : It is a goat cheese roll.

  • The

    soft cheese range of

    the discount giant is available in almost all federal states.

  • The “aromatic soft cheese made from goat's milk” is not the only cheese from the manufacturer that has to be withdrawn from the market.

Update of 29 October, 11:38:

Laupheim - The

food discounter Lidl

rows back: Although the consumer portal

Produktrückrufe.de

had firmly pledged more products by manufacturer

JERMI cheese GmbH

are not affected by the recall, the situation appears completely different now to be.

Almost two weeks later,

Lidl

reports

that all JERMI soft cheese products labeled “

Goat cheese

roll

creamy / Aromatic soft cheese made from goat milk” must be returned or disposed of immediately.

The recall on October 15, 2020 initially only

affected

products with the

best before

date

November 5

,

2020

,

November

6

,

2020

and

November

9

,

2020

.

The

discounter

giant is

now extending

the

recall

to all

JERMI cheese products

in 100 gram packs and labeled “

My Käserei

Ziegenkäserolle” regardless of their

best-before

date.

The affected product was available from

Lidl

throughout Germany - with the exception of

Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania

.

Lidl

has already withdrawn the affected soft cheese from circulation.

Customers and goat cheese fans should now check their refrigerator for the cheese rolls with the

DE BW 331 EG identity

code to be on the safe side

, as they can

cause serious health

damage: The

bacteria

contained in the product

, so-called "Listeria monocytogenes", can have a

heavy stomach - and

cause

intestinal diseases

and flu-like symptoms.

UPDATE: # RECALL |

#WARNING |

ATTENTION: Detection of dangerous ´Listeria monocytogenes´- # contamination in MEINE KÄSEREI # Ziegenkäse.rolle von #LIDL> recall now extended to all best before dates https://t.co/L6fJmvScyE https://t.co/kf6fX47flz

- produktrueckruf.de (@Rueckrufportal) October 28, 2020

The bacteria

can be particularly

dangerous to infants, toddlers, pregnant women and people with a weakened immune system: The disease

listeriosis

can take on a particularly severe course in them, lead to blood poisoning,

brain or meningitis

and thus even be fatal.

In

pregnant women

, the bacteria can also

cause

premature births or miscarriages

.

JERMI

and

Lidl

now expressly apologize to their customers for the inconvenience and refund the purchase price to all those affected, even without a receipt.

Original post from October 16, 2020:

Lidl

is one of the most popular discount grocery stores in Germany, even though it was recently overtaken * by a competitor.

This may only be of interest to the company's management, from a consumer perspective it is more important that the products offered are of good quality and are affordable.

Cheese recall at Lidl: danger from microbiological contamination

However, there is a new problem in this regard: a

cheese product

must be

recalled

because of the risk of

microbiological contamination

.

Customers who

last bought

the “

creamy

goat cheese

roll / aromatic soft cheese made from goat milk” should not consume the food under any circumstances.

Reason: There is a threat of serious health effects.

The product comes from the manufacturer

Jermi Käsewerk GmbH

from Laupheim - like the Lidl headquarters in Baden-Württemberg.

The contaminated cheese is offered nationwide in all federal states, the only exception being Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, as reported by the Produktrueckätze.de portal.

Lidl: recall of soft cheese made from goat milk due to the risk of infection with listeria

What specific risks does Lidl's cheese product pose?

The contamination was found in the form of Listeria monocytogenes.

By enjoying the cheese product, consumers can contract

listeriosis

- this is

what

an

infection with listeria is

called.

This can

have very bad health effects in the medium term

, especially for risk groups such as pregnant women, newborns or people with a

weakened immune system

.

Lidl: The manufacturer JERMI Käsewerk GmbH informed about a product recall of the product "My cheese dairy goat cheese roll, 100 g".

Manufacturer Jermi apologizes for the misconduct, Lidl emphasizes that only the goat cheese roll of the brand “Meine Käserei” is affected - a 100 gram pack.

In addition, as

HNA.de

* explains, only certain sales batches are

affected

by the

cheese recall

: These are the

best before dates on November 5th, 2020, November 6th, 2020 and November 9th, 2020

.

The identity code of the defective products is "

DE BW 331 EG

".

The

contaminated soft cheese

can be returned to any Lidl branch without presenting the receipt and the purchase price will be refunded.

This food contamination * is not an isolated case: Even a yogurt recall thwarted Lidl and Aldi’s plans: Anyone who recently bought an Ehrmann Almighurt should be careful.
