Salmonella contaminated: Germany-wide egg recall at Aldi, Rewe and Penny


Farm Parey has launched a recall for its free range eggs. The eggs were sold by the discounters Aldi Nord and Penny and the supermarket chain Rewe in several federal states. Consumers can tell from the print number whether they are affected.

Eggs were sold in several stores
The Farm Parey company is calling its free-range eggs back, according to the portal "Lebensmittelwarnung.de". These could possibly be contaminated with Salmonella. According to a letter from the manufacturer, the Salmonella Enteritidis bacterium had been detected in an investigation of "free-range eggs" with the best before date (expiry date) until October 12, 2017.

Customers can check the print number on the egg
The affected eggs have the print number 1-DE-1504401 and were sold at Aldi Nord, Penny and Rewe in Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Saxony, Thuringia and Bavaria.

Diarrhea and vomiting from salmonella
Anyone who has already bought the affected eggs should return them or dispose of them. Consumption is strongly discouraged. Because a salmonella cause uncomfortable gastrointestinal infections (salmonellosis). The disease occurs a few hours to days after the infection and manifests itself primarily through sudden onset diarrhea, malaise, feeling cold, headache and abdominal pain, sometimes vomiting and mild fever, as well as pain during bowel movements and mucus or blood in the stool possible.

The symptoms usually go away after a few hours or days. Infants, small children, seniors and people with a weakened immune system can lose their fluids due to diarrhea and vomiting. In some cases, hospital treatment is therefore required.

With severe symptoms to the doctor
Those who have already eaten the affected eggs and develop severe or persistent symptoms should see a doctor and point out the possibility of a Salmonella infection, the message said. Preventive treatment without existing symptoms, on the other hand, is not useful.

The Fipronil scandal was only a few weeks ago
A great recall was only started a few weeks ago, as thousands of eggs were contaminated with insecticides. It was known that the unauthorized substance fipronil, which acts among other things against fleas, lice and ticks, was used in several laying hen stocks.
