Recall for organic eggs

As reported by the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety on its portal "Lebensmittelwarnung.de", the Eifrisch-Vermarktungs-GmbH and Co.KG from Lohne (Lower Saxony) has a recall for "eggs from organic production" with the best-before dates from 07/03/2018 to 07/07 .2018 and the batch number / lot identification: 0-DE-0356331 started. Apparently Salmonella Enteritidis were found in the eggs. The organic eggs in packs of 10 and 6 were sold through the retail chains Penny, Kaufland, Aldi Nord, Aldi Süd, Real, Lidl and Netto.

Bacteria can cause gastrointestinal disorders

Salmonella can cause severe gastrointestinal disorders (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, vomiting and mild fever are added.

The symptoms usually go away on their own after a few hours or days.

However, fluid loss due to diarrhea and vomiting can be dangerous for infants, young children, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system.

“People who have eaten this food and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical help and point out a possible Salmonella infection,” says “Lebensmittelwarnung.de”. (ad)
