On sale at Aldi Nord
According to the company, the article was sold in branches of the Aldi Nord retail chain and only in Berlin and Hamburg, as well as in the federal states of Brandenburg, Hesse, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia and Schleswig-Holstein.
Customers who bought the product can return it to the retailer for a refund of the purchase price.
"We strongly advise against consuming the products from the specified product batch", the company from Heilsbronn writes.
Bacteria cause gastrointestinal infections
Salmonella cause unpleasant gastrointestinal infections (salmonellosis). The disease occurs a few hours to days after the infection and manifests itself primarily through sudden onset diarrhea, abdominal pain, malaise, feeling cold and headache.
In some cases, there is vomiting and a slight fever, as well as pain during bowel movements and mucus or blood in the stool.
The symptoms usually disappear on their own after a few hours or days. Infants, young children, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system can lose their fluids due to diarrhea and vomiting.
Therefore hospital treatment is sometimes required.
Hans Kupfer & Sohn GmbH & Co. KG writes: "People who develop severe or persistent symptoms and have eaten this food should seek medical help and point out a possible Salmonella infection." (Ad)
