Edeka starts recall: Allergens in ham Bockwurst not listed

The supermarket chain Edeka has started a recall for the product "Delicatessen Ham Bockwurst" of the own brand "Gut & Günstig". According to the company, certain allergens are not listed in the ingredients. Allergy sufferers should avoid the sausage better.

Packaging could contain ham goat sausage with cheese

The food retailer Edeka is recalling the “Delicatessen Bockwurst” product from the “Gut & Günstig” private label. According to a message from the dpa news agency, the company said that it cannot be ruled out that ham packs of sausage with cheese can be found in individual packs. For certain allergy sufferers, consumption could lead to health problems.

Allergens not listed in the ingredients

The supermarket chain writes on its website: "The product may contain traces of SELLERIE and MUSTARD."

But milk or milk components are not listed as allergens in the ingredients.

The recall concerns the 400 gram pack with the best before date of August 13th, 2019 and the veterinary control number DE BW 03333 E.

Anyone who has bought the sausage can return it to the supermarket without a receipt.

According to the information, the product went on sale nationwide with the exception of Hamburg, Hesse, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saarland and Schleswig-Holstein.

Consumers who are not allergic to milk or milk components could easily consume the sausage.

Don't underestimate food allergies

Food allergies have increased significantly in recent years. Allergic reactions to food are generally not limited to certain organs.

The most common symptoms are reactions on the skin and mucous membrane, in the ear, nose and throat area, in the gastrointestinal tract and on the cardiovascular system.

In those affected, the consumption of the respective allergens can lead to itchy rash, sneezing attacks, shortness of breath, flatulence, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, rapid heartbeat, increased heart rate, dizziness and circulatory problems.

The most severe allergic reaction to food is anaphylactic shock.

"This affects at least two organ systems (e.g. skin and gastrointestinal tract: wheals and vomiting) or there are life-threatening reactions such as respiratory failure and / or the cardiovascular system (drop in blood pressure, cardiac arrest) fails," explains the German Allergy and asthma association (DAAB).

According to the experts, there is an immediate need for action here. (ad)
