Listeria causing illness: sausage manufacturer Steinemann starts recall for liver sausage
The meat and sausage manufacturer Steinemann calls back its “Delicatessen chives liver sausage” after finding harmful bacteria. Listeria had been found in the product. These germs can lead to nausea and vomiting, among other things.

Listeria found in liver sausage
The Netto Marken-Discount AG & Co. KG and the meat and sausage manufacturer Steinemann from the district of Vechta provide information about a product recall due to contamination with listeria that cannot be ruled out. As stated in a message from Steinemann, in the article "Delicatessen chives liver sausage" with the best-before date 18.09.2016 and the batch number 033016115, listeria was verified in the course of tests.

Goods can be returned without a receipt
"For reasons of preventive consumer protection, we therefore call the goods back," says the message. According to the information, the product was offered regionally at Netto Marken-Discount in parts of Brandenburg, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. Consumers who have the affected batch of liver sausage in their household are asked to stop consuming it. The affected goods can also be returned without a receipt and a refund of the purchase price.

Evidence of listeria is piling up
Recently, there have been increasing reports of evidence of pathogens in food. Listeria deaths have even been reported recently.

Listeria (Listeria monocytogenes) can cause so-called “listeriosis” in humans. The condition can cause flu-like symptoms such as vomiting, muscle pain, diarrhea and fever.

The pathogens can be dangerous for pregnant women
As a rule, the disease takes a harmless course in healthy adults, but it can be dangerous for pregnant women, newborns, the elderly and people with poor immune defense and, for example, lead to blood poisoning, inflammation of the brain or meninges. The risk of premature birth or miscarriage increases in pregnant women.

Avoid certain foods
According to the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), risk persons should, among other things, not eat raw animal foods (such as Mett) to protect themselves. You should also avoid smoked or marinated fish products and raw milk cheese. (ad)
