Lidl: Supermarkt ruft Räucherfisch zurück
Lidl, the discount supermarket, is issuing a warning about the sale of rainbow trout fillets in its stores due to bacterial contamination. The affected products are the „Nautica Rainbow Trout Fillets, 125g“ in the natural and pepper varieties, as well as the „XXL Nautica Rainbow Trout Fillets, 140g“ in the natural variety.
The manufacturer is the Danish company Agustson a/s from Vejle. As Lidl further stated, the recall applies to all products with a consumption date up to and including October 5, 2023, and the identification code DK 4566 EG.
The affected products have been found to contain the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes, which can cause severe gastrointestinal symptoms. Serious illness may occur in infants, young children, pregnant women, and elderly or sick individuals. Lidl has issued a warning, advising customers to heed the recall and avoid consuming the products.
The smoked fish fillets have therefore been removed from sale. Consumers can return the affected products to any Lidl store. The purchase price will be refunded without a receipt. Other products, especially rainbow trout fillets from other manufacturers, are not affected by the recall, according to Lidl.
