Weihenstephan and Bärenmarke start recalling several dairy products

Bärenmarke Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH has started a recall for the article "The fresh milk" because it was found to be contaminated with a diarrhea. The Weihenstephan dairy also calls back dairy products because they can spoil prematurely.

The Bärenmarke Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH is recalling the product "The fresh milk" (3.8% fat), 1 liter pack, with the best before date (best before date) 30.11.2019. "During routine microbiological checks, contamination with Bacillus Cereus was found in individual packs, an omnipresent germ," the company wrote in a press release published by the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety on its portal "lebensmittelwarnung.de".

Bacteria can form two different types of toxins

As the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety explains on its website, Bacillus (B.) cereus is one of the spore-forming bacteria. Some B. cereus strains are able to produce two different types of toxins (toxins) that can lead to a food-borne illness. According to the experts, the symptoms differ depending on the type of toxin formed.

With the diarrhea type (diarrhea type), the toxin is only formed in the human gastrointestinal tract. Six to 15 hours after eating the contaminated food, stomach cramps and diarrhea occur. The symptoms last about 24 hours. With the emetic type (vomiting type), the heat-stable toxin is already formed in the food. Nausea and vomiting appear half an hour to six hours after consumption; the symptoms persist for less than 24 hours.

Purchase price will be refunded

According to the bear brand, the cause of the contamination was identified and remedied in the meantime. The supplied trading companies have removed the goods from the trade. Consumers who have bought one of the specified items will receive a refund of the purchase price at their shops even without presenting their receipt.

Health impairments are unlikely

Molkerei Weihenstephan GmbH is also recalling dairy products because a production fault occasionally leads to premature spoilage of the products, "which is visually and smell clearly recognizable," the dairy writes in a press release that was published on "lebensmittelwarnung.de". "At the current time, health impairments are unlikely, but cannot be completely ruled out," says the company. According to the information, the causal technical problem has now been resolved.

The products affected by the recall are the "Weihenstephan H milk" 3.5% (1 liter) with the best before date: 08.01.2020 and the "Weihenstephan H cocoa" (1 liter) with the best before date: 19.02 .2020. Consumers are asked to return the affected products to the point of sale with the stated best-before dates. The goods are exchanged or refunded there. (ad)
