Disease-causing bacteria found in Aldi sausage

The Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety is currently warning of a sausage that is sold at Aldi Süd and in some branches of Aldi Nord. In the course of an investigation, disease-causing bacteria of the type Listeria monocytogenes were found in a sample of the product, which can trigger the serious disease listeriosis. We strongly advise against eating the sausage.

It is the article "Ham Red Sausage" in the 100 gram packaging of the manufacturer Franz Wiltmann GmbH & Co. KG. The affected sausage has a best-before date of March 8, 2019. According to the manufacturer, the goods were sold in all branches of Aldi Süd and in the three Aldi north regions Hannoversch Münden, Werl and Wittstock.

Lack of information

Both the Aldi Nord website and the Aldi-Süd website are not informed of the recall. Only the manufacturer himself warns of the contaminated sausage product on the company website. An image of the product was also not provided. According to the manufacturer, the purchased sausages can be returned to the branches of Aldi Süd and Aldi Nord, where the purchase price will then be reimbursed. Other products from Franz Wiltmann are not affected.

Aldi North and South have now responded to the recall and are warning customers of the company's websites.

Listeria bacteria can be dangerous

Listeria in food can cause numerous complaints. For example, flu-like symptoms with fever, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting can occur. Itchy rashes are also possible. In some cases, there are serious complications that can lead to dangerous complications such as inflammation of the brain or blood poisoning. Especially people with weakened immune systems belong to the risk group for severe courses. These include, for example, the elderly, HIV patients, alcoholics and people with diabetes.

Pregnant women are particularly at risk

Almost half of all cases of listeriosis affect pregnant women, since the immune system changes during pregnancy, making it more susceptible to the bacteria. The Listeria can also be transferred to the unborn child and, in the worst case, lead to premature or stillbirth.

Listeriosis is notifiable

Listeriosis is one of the notifiable diseases in Germany. Anyone who has consumed the affected product and subsequently feels the symptoms described here or a general feeling of being unwell should immediately consult a doctor and point out possible listeriosis. Since the pathogens remain in the intestine for weeks after the disease, special hygiene in the sanitary facilities is advisable to avoid further spread. (vb)
