Almonds contaminated with salmonella

Nutwork Handelsgesellschaft mbH has started a call-back for "K-Classic almonds whole 200g", EAN 4337185307874, best before date / batch: 28.02.2019 / L 0230. "In a routine check, salmonella was detected in this batch," says a message published on the website of the grocery chain Kaufland.

It is not recommended to consume the product

"It is not recommended to consume the product with the stated best-before date," says the company.

Kaufland Germany had taken the affected goods preventively from the sale.

Consumers can return the product in any country of purchase - even without presenting the receipt - for a refund of the purchase price.

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 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. (ad)
