Reminding me of poultry sausages is not an isolated case

Over and over again, familiar food chains come with callbacks. Edeka recently recalled Bockwurst from Gut & Auspicious. The problem here was the same as with poultry sausages. It may have contained cheese in individual cases. The big problem is allergists.

But recall can also affect non-allergic people. Because food does not always contain the edible side of the body, as is the case with Aldi. Another example of a sausage callback. Pieces of plastic were found in "crispy sausages." A serious health risk for all consumers, as foreign bodies in food can cause serious injury.

The Wilke scandal: a far-reaching recall in October

Most recalls refer to specific storage duration or individual packaging and are therefore usually limited to a few stores. But in October this year, there was a major scandal in the food industry in Germany. As a later report showed, so much of Wilke's contaminated sausage came into circulation.

The products were first exposed to dangerous germs in early October. These were the so-called Listeria. In people with a weakened immune system, germs can be deadly. Thus, several deaths were associated with the consumption of sausages, and numerous contamination could be traced back to the contaminated sausage.

Recall Wilke: Recall Problems

The problem with the case was that the name "Wilke" was often not directly on the packaging, as the Wilke sausage was usually sold as a private label or in wholesale. In addition, germinated sausage could be included in other finished products. All the details in this case are still unclear. The task of mammoth food removal has already begun. It is about 300 tonnes of food that goes to trash after discovery. The first goods that were destroyed were the remains from the camp. The magnitude of the germ case is likely to take the authorities even longer. Fortunately, such a big scandal is rare.
