Do not consume affected sausages
Listeria are bacteria that can trigger stomach / intestinal diseases (listeriosis) and flu-like symptoms.
In healthy adults, the infection is in most cases unremarkable or takes a harmless course, explains the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL).
But: "Certain groups of people (pregnant women, small children, the elderly and immunocompromised) can develop very serious illnesses," says the AGES website.
Because of this health risk, customers should pay attention to the recall and not consume the affected products. (ad)
