Ostsee Fisch recalls premium Scandinavian smoked salmon 200g from the market

The fish manufacturer Ostsee Fisch has started a recall campaign for its product Ostsee Fisch Premium Scandinavian Smoked Salmon 200g. According to the company, the batch with the consumption date of September 16, 2012 may contain pathogenic microorganisms. Consumers are encouraged not to eat the salmon under any circumstances, but to bring them back to the retailer for a refund of the purchase price. The consumption could have health consequences, as the Ostsee Fisch GmbH & Co. Produktions- und Vertriebs KG (near Rostock) emphasized.

Consumers who bought the "Premium Scandinavian Smoked Salmon" in the 200g packaging with the number 3521B should under no circumstances consume it. During a routine examination, pathogenic microorganisms Listeria monocytogenes were detected in the laboratory.

The bacteria of the Listeria strain can lead to listeriosis. The infectious disease manifests itself with flu-like symptoms such as body aches, headaches, diarrhea and abdominal pain. As the process progresses, fever and paralysis may appear. In some cases, the disease has already led to death. While healthy people usually excrete the Listeria germs without complications, groups of people with a weakened immune system are particularly at risk. This includes pregnant women, children and the elderly. Pregnant women are generally not advised to eat raw meat or fish anyway, as they are particularly susceptible to serious illnesses.

As the company emphasized, only the named batch is affected by the recall. All other varieties and batches can be consumed without any problems. The smoked salmon is distributed in particular in the federal states of Hesse, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate. "Other codings can be consumed carefree." (Sb)
