Listeria have been detected in three salad bowls with chicken sold by Migros. The Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) recommends not to consume the products, as a health hazard cannot be ruled out, as stated in a statement on Tuesday.
The products affected are Migros Daily Saladbowl Chicken (article number: 1313.522 / to be consumed by December 15, 2020 and by December 16, 2020), Migros Daily Saladbowl Chicken Cheese (article number: 1313.545 / to be consumed by December 15, 2020 and until 16. 12. 2020) as well as Anna’s Best Saladbowl Poulet Caprese (item number: 1 303.247 / to be consumed until 15. 12. 2020, until 17. 12. 2020 and until 18. 12. 2020).
An infection with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes is usually mild or even without symptoms in people with an intact immune system, as the FSVO writes. And: In immunocompromised people, a number of severe symptoms can develop, with a potentially fatal outcome. During pregnancy, Listeria infection can lead to a miscarriage, or the child can be born with blood poisoning or meningitis.
