Very serious course of diseases possible

Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria) are bacteria that can trigger severe stomach / intestinal diseases (listeriosis).

In healthy adults, the infection is usually unremarkable or takes a harmless course with symptoms such as a flu infection such as fever and muscle pain or vomiting and diarrhea, explains the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL) on its website.

But "certain groups of people (pregnant women, small children, the elderly and immunocompromised) can cause very serious illnesses," warns Hamberger Großmarkt GmbH. Because of this health risk, customers should pay attention to the recall and not consume the affected products.
