Following the recent scandals in the meat and dairy industry, Norma must now recall a product that poses a health hazard.
Hamburg – Norma recalls walnuts of the brand Ardilla. They could be contaminated with salmonella. The manufacturer Nutzwork Handels GmbH claims to have demonstrated self-monitoring in a batch of salmonella.

The recall concerns the walnuts in 1000g-cups with expiry date 01.07.2020 and 02.07.2020. These packs were only supplied to Normafilialen in Baden-Wurttemberg, Bavaria, Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia.
Customers who have bought packages of contaminated walnuts can also return them without a receipt in all Norma stores and get their money back. The Federal Office of Consumer Protection is urgently warning against the consumption of contaminated nuts.

Norma recalls walnuts: Great health hazard
Salmonella are dangerous bacteria that cause extreme diarrhea with vomiting and fever. In some cases it can come to a blood poisoning. The germs multiply quickly on uncooled foods – but more often than vegetables, products such as raw meat or raw eggs are affected.
In recent times, scandals with contaminated or gaggy food pile up. More and more circles are attracted by the "Wilke scandal" – private labels of all supermarkets are affected and more than 300 tons of moldy and rotten meat must be destroyed. REWE and Norma had a recall because of the same pathogens. Several supermarket chains, including Aldi and Lidl, had to recall contaminated milk.
The accumulation of incidents provides for discussion. At the weekend, Minister of Food Julia KlOckner (CDU) expressed critical – and got a return coach. The brand new Mercedes-Benz SUV, however, has massive security problems and is also affected by a recall, such as nordbuzz.de * reported.
Currently, an apple juice is recalled because of mold.
A study has shown that customers of mobile service providers such as Aldi Talk surf slower than direct users of mobile operators such as Vodafone.
Once again, consumer confidence in the German meat industry is put to the test: a new bacterial scandal is looming. This time in Baden-Wurttemberg.
How healthy are the products that end up in the shopping cart? Consumers are paying more and more attention to their diet. Lidl and Aldi are also taking this into account with a speedy innovation.
The investigations into the food scandal at the company Wilke go on. Now the Robert Koch Institute has handed over a list.
