Salmonella can have serious health consequences.
Infested food must therefore be recalled immediately.
As in the case of this product.
Zeven - Urgent recall * of a popular spice: The company TSI Consumer Goods GmbH has found salmonella in a popular spice from the everyday kitchen during its regular self-tests of its products.
There is therefore an urgent warning against consumption.
The product is "Kania Marjoram rubbed" in a 10g shaker.
This article was sold in Lidl * stores all over Germany.
Recall: Salmonella discovered in marjoram spice - health hazard
Of course, affected spices can be returned to the corresponding Lidl branches - as
, the purchase price will be reimbursed in full even without presenting the corresponding receipt.
However, the recall only applies to a specific batch of the spice with the following best-before dates and corresponding lot numbers:
Item name: "Kania Marjoram rubbed"
Best before date / Lot number: 07.2023 |
A30 / B30
best before date / lot number: 08.2023 |
A01 / A04 / A14 / A15 / B04 / C04
Other spices as well as other batches of the "Kania Marjoram rubbed" spice are not affected by the recall * and therefore do not pose a health risk - they can therefore be consumed and used without hesitation.
Warning: Salmonella infection can have serious consequences
The recall * of a product for which Salmonella has been detected or at least a serious suspicion of Salmonella infection is not made without reason.
An infection with the bacteria usually results in malaise and diarrhea, in more serious situations vomiting and fever can occur.
Children, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system are particularly at risk.
Consumption is therefore strongly discouraged.
In another case, there was also Salmonella contamination * of several popular spice products.
Since these were sold nationwide in different supermarkets, caution is advised here too.
The only thing that is even more urgent is the recall and the warning of a cheese * in which Shiga toxin-producing E. coli bacteria (STEC) had been detected.
