Salmonella: manufacturer recalls dog food again
Nutraferm Petfood GmbH from Vechta (Lower Saxony) has started a recall for the article "Chicken necks" in a 100 gram bag. According to the company, salmonella was found in dog food. These bacteria can affect both human and animal health.
As the retail company Edeka reports on its website, Nutraferm Petfood GmbH from Vechta, Lower Saxony, is recalling the item "Chicken necks" in a 100g bag labeled EDEKA with the best-before date printed on the back of the packaging, 11/21/21 and the batch number 2005.
Mainly offered by Marktkauf and Edeka
"Salmonella was found in a sample of this article in an investigation," the company writes. The goods have already been taken off the market. According to the information, the affected dog snack "EDEKA chicken necks" was mainly offered by Marktkauf and Edeka. Customers who have bought the item concerned will receive a refund of the purchase price in their shopping centers even without presenting the receipt.
Nutraferm Petfood GmbH had already recalled various types of dog food for Salmonella last year, including “EDEKA chicken necks”.
Health risk for humans and animals
Salmonella are bacteria that pose a significant health risk for both humans and animals. They can lead to salmonellosis. According to experts, puppies and young dogs are particularly susceptible to dogs.
"Mostly latent infections are observed. Under the influence of favorable factors, diarrhea, vomiting and fever can also develop," explains the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Security (AGES) on its website.
A potential danger from dog snacks can also exist for humans, because the bacteria pose a considerable risk of infection "for toddlers and older people as well as those who are immunocompromised", as the Lower Saxony State Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (Laves) writes.
In humans, a typical Salmonella infection manifests itself through nausea, possibly vomiting, abdominal pain, fever and diarrhea. These symptoms can last for several days, explains the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) on its website.
Anyone who has bought the affected product and develops such symptoms should see a doctor and point out the suspected Salmonella. (ad)
