Drugstore chain dm starts recall of Bio Soja Drink Calcium
The drugstore chain dm has started a recall for the product "dmBio Sojadrink Calcium". Due to microbial deviations, the consistency of the drink could change significantly, which is shown, for example, by flocculation. Another company is recalling turmeric powder due to a potential health hazard.
Changed consistency of the drink possible
The drugstore chain dm is recalling the organic soy drink calcium. As the company writes on its website, individual packs of the product "dmBio Sojadrink Calcium" with the best-before date (MHD) 01/18/2019 were found to have a sensory deviation that is due to a microbial deviation. As a result, the consistency of the product can change significantly, which is shown, for example, by flocculation or phase separation.
Carefully removed from sales
"Since it cannot be ruled out with complete certainty that further packs with this expiry date could be affected by this, dm has taken the entire batch out of sale as a precaution," the company writes.
The best before date (best before date) is easily recognizable on the top next to the screw cap.
Customers who purchased the product with the above-mentioned expiry date can return it to the dm stores unopened or already opened. The purchase price will be refunded.
Salmonella in turmeric powder
There is currently another recall from the food sector.
As reported by the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety on its portal "Lebensmittelwarnung.de", Ideal Cash & Carry Turmeric Powder Haldi (brand: TRS) is recalling 100 grams with an expiry date of 10/31/2019.
Salmonella was found in the turmeric powder.
Bacteria cause gastrointestinal infections
Salmonella are bacteria that can trigger 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 often last for several days. The resulting dehydration can be very pronounced in small children or older adults, ”writes the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on its website.
Ingestion is not recommended
"People who have eaten this food and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical help and point out a possible Salmonella infection," says a customer information leaflet from Ideal Cash & Carry.
"Preventing medical treatment without symptoms does not make sense."
Customers who have purchased this product are requested not to consume it or to heat it prior to consumption. All customers can return the item to the distributor and receive new ones. (ad)
