Bacteria harmful to health: recall campaign for Rügenwalder Teewurst
The food manufacturer Rügenwalder Mühle has launched a recall campaign for the product "Rügenwalder Teewurst coarse". There could be health-threatening bacteria in a particular batch. It is not the first time that the company has recalled sausages.
Microbial contamination detected
The Rügenwalder Mühle has announced in a message that it has the product "Rügenwalder Teewurst coarse" (167 g) in the intestine - with the batch number. WE 630102, best before date: 03.03. until Mar 9, 2016 - call back. The sausage is available as a so-called service item at the counters in butcher shops or supermarkets. The company announced that a potential microbial contamination with verotoxin-forming Escherichia coli (VTEC) was detected as part of a scheduled sample check.
The consumption of affected products is not recommended
As the food manufacturer emphasized, it is only a small, open counter product in the 167 gram casing (coarse tea sausage), which is sold in its entirety with the best-before date (BBD) and batch number printed. Packaged self-service products and all other products from the Rügenwalder Mühle are not affected. The return of the affected goods has already been arranged. We do not recommend consuming the products from the specified product batch.
Not the first recall
It is not the first time that the company has had to launch a recall. Rügenwalder Teewurst was also recalled in May last year after dangerous germs had been discovered. As the Federal Office of Consumer Protection announced at the time, verotoxin-forming Escherichia coli (VTEC) and the toxin gene stx1 were found. In some cases, such intestinal germs can lead to symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, blood in the stool, fever, nausea and vomiting. (ad)
