Recall: Cardamom spice contaminated with salmonella
If you want to start baking Christmas cookies at home, you should check the ingredients again. Because a certain cardamom spice is currently being recalled because it could be contaminated with salmonella. Among other things, these bacteria can lead to diarrhea.
Salmonella in cardamom spice
Cardamom is actually one of the healthy Christmas spices. But certain packs can possibly harm your health. Because, as the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety reports on its portal "Lebensmittelwarnung.de", the company TSI calls back a certain cardamom spice because it could be contaminated with salmonella.
Spice often used in Christmas cookies
According to the information, the company TSI from Zeven, Lower Saxony, warns of a cardamom spice contaminated with salmonella, which is often used for Christmas cookies.
The recall affects "Müller's cardamom ground in the shell" in bags of 10 grams.
The products with the best before dates 31.01.2021 and 31.02.2021 have the batch number / lot identification: 01.2021 A23 - 02.2021 A02 - 02.2021 A03 - 02.2021 B03 - 02.2021 C05 - 02.2021 A06 - 02.2021 B06.
Bacteria can cause gastrointestinal disorders
Salmonella can cause severe gastrointestinal disorders (salmonellosis).
The disease manifests itself within a few days after infection with diarrhea, abdominal pain and occasionally vomiting and mild fever.
As a rule, the symptoms subside after a few days.
When preparing baked goods or the like, there are normally no health concerns due to the high temperatures during baking.
"People who have eaten this food and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical help and point out a possible Salmonella infection," says the portal "Lebensmittelwarnung.de". (ad)
