This recall can save lives! Because of serious health hazards, Rewe now recalls a popular meat product.
Cologne – The supermarket chain Rewe warns urgently against the consumption of one of its products. This has a very serious background because it has found dangerous bacteria. Therefore, there is a health hazard – reason enough for an official recall.
Affected by the recall is a pork product of Golßener Fleisch- und Wurstwaren GmbH, which marketed products of the brand "Wilhelm Brandenburg" in this case. "For reasons of preventive consumer protection," the company says, it now calls back a certain product and warns against consumption.
Recall: Rewe issues a drastic warning
The recall at Rewe includes the "pork roast with juniper from the back" in the 100 gram pack. The expiration date of the pork roast product is 18 August 2019; The recall therefore concerns a product that might still be in some refrigerators.
The pork product from Rewe was sold in numerous states:
Listeria in the flesh are a great danger – immediate recall by Rewe
Rewe points out that there was a specific reason for the recall. And indeed, there was in the roast pork in a check a positive finding of so-called "Listeria Monocytogenes", colloquially called Listeria. These can be very dangerous, especially in the case of people with reduced health, such as pregnant women, the chronically ill, newborns and the elderly. The resulting diseases can be serious and lead to death. Brain and brain inflammation and blood poisoning are possible; in pregnant women premature birth and miscarriage.

Several recalls for pork: minced meat, sausages, roast pork
Also on Thursday another manufacturer warned against eating his salami. In the past, there have been repeated calls for meat. Not always, but often, Listeria was the occasion. For example, Netto's mincemeat was recently affected by a recall – due to serious health risks. Another recall also concerned meat, namely ground beef at Kaufland. Again, the consumption was advised against when recalling. And that's not all: because of salmonella in Hackepeter Norma recently triggered a callback. A security risk also comes from a product that customers could buy from Decathlon. That's why the sporting goods retailer recently recalled it.
What do food recalls mean for consumers?
After all, recalls, as last occurred, does not necessarily mean that our food is less safe than it used to. It may also mean that manufacturers' controls detect problems early.
Currently, an Italian salami is being recalled. In it ammunition residues were found.
