The product concerned is “Graved Salmon” in the 100 gram package of the manufacturer Fa. Marquart GmbH from Mühlacker in Baden-Württemberg. The salmon can be identified by the batch number 7527 and the best before date 27 October 2020. The manufacturer recommends not to consume the salmon any more.
The Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety and a manufacturer of delicatessen fish products provide information about a product recall of a salmon product. In the article concerned, microbacteriological deviations were found in the course of self-checks, according to the reasoning. The salmon is recalled therefore in the sense of the preventive consumer protection.
Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not communicate where exactly the salmon was sold. According to the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety, the states of Baden-Württemberg, Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia are affected by the recall. According to the manufacturer’s website, some of the products are sold via direct sales. However, the producer also supplies larger customers such as Mövenpick and some hotels.
In a notice, the producer asks the customers to return the salmon to the respective purchase point. The purchase price will be refunded there.
Where was the salmon sold?
Marquart GmbH also leaves consumers in the dark about the actual reason for the recall. After all, the word “microbacteriological deviations” can mean just about anything that has to do with bacteria. For example, it could be listeria, which represents a serious health hazard for certain groups such as pregnant women, unborn babies, elderly people and people with weakened immune systems. A more specific warning would be appropriate here. (vb)
