Listeria outbreak caused product recall in Europe


In Belgium supermarket chain Albert Heijn has taken several meat products off the shelves due to the possible presence of listeria. The Federal Food Agency reported this on Sunday. Aldi previously recalled roast beef from the Délifin brand in Belgium.

At the Albert Heijn it comes to pre-packaged and sliced meat products from the Wahid brand, including turkey ham, chicken butter sausage, chicken fillet provence, chicken fillet nature, beef cervelate, beef smoked beef, beef salami. The meat products are supplied by the Dutch company Offerman. Customers are urged not to eat and return the products.

On Friday it was announced that three people died as a result of the listeria contamination in meat products from producer Offerman. A woman had a miscarriage.
