A recall was published for sausages from the supermarket. The affected product could contain salmonella and should no longer be consumed.

In Corona times, we try to go to the supermarket as rarely as possible. And then you might prefer to buy everything from one provider than go to several shops. Anyone who mainly buys in the discounter should now check their stocks. At least if Penny is one of the favorite supermarkets.

Penny recalls sausage due to salmonella

The discount chain has published a current product recall on its website. Because the consumption of a sold sausage could lead to "health impairments". The sausage could contain salmonella. Specifically, it is the following product:

  • "Schildauer" brand pork cracker
  • In the 7 x 100 gram pack
  • Manufacturer: SFW Schildauer Fleisch- und Wurstwaren GmbH
  • Best before date: 02/24/2021
  • Lot number 210404
  • Sold at Penny Germany, state: Saxony-Anhalt

The recall should be limited to parts of Saxony-Anhalt. There the sausage was sold in penny markets. In the meantime, the affected goods are said to have already been taken off the market, but those who already have them at home should check the batch number.

It cannot be ruled out that there are salmonella in the sausage. These are rod-shaped bacteria that can lead to severe diarrheal diseases. Symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting and fever usually go away on their own within a few days. Salmonella infections can also be dangerous, especially for immunocompromised people, infants, small children and the elderly. In the event of severe disease, medical help should be sought as a precaution.

Other Wurst and Schildauer products should not be affected. Anyone who has bought the product can return it to the Penny branch without presenting a receipt and should be reimbursed the purchase price.
