Listeriosis can be life-threatening for people with a weakened immune system. Some wholesalers are therefore calling back several food products as a precaution.
Aldi, Migros and Denner are recalling various ready-made salads because of Listeria. A health risk cannot be ruled out, the wholesalers announced on Thursday. They recommend not consuming these products.
The following three Aldi articles are affected and have been recalled across Switzerland for reasons of precautionary consumer protection:
The products relate to the best before dates from January 6th to 10th, 2021. Internal controls have shown Listeria on some of these products, it said.
Seven ready-made salads are affected at Migros, including M-Budget mixed salads and several products from the Anna’s Best brand. The salads were mainly sold in Migros branches in Lucerne, Basel, Eastern Switzerland, Ticino, Zurich and online.
Denner recalled three articles of the Mmmm mixed salads, all with use-by dates of January 8th and 9th. All sales outlets were affected. Customers can return the relevant products to Aldi, Migros or Denner branches and receive a refund of the sales price.
An infection with Listeria usually has no symptoms in healthy adults. For people with a weakened immune system, however, listeriosis can be life-threatening. The sick and the elderly, small children and people with a weakened immune system as well as pregnant women are particularly at risk.
