The Strauss poultry farm is recalling eggs. The reason for the recall is possible contamination with salmonella. Under no circumstances should consumers eat the eggs, which were mainly sold in Hesse.
The recalled eggs come from the Strauss poultry farm based in Reinheim-Georgenhausen in Hesse (Darmstadt-Dieburg district). “Currently, it cannot be completely ruled out that eggs with the stamp number 2-DE-0680392 are contaminated with salmonella,” the company said.
Recall of eggs from the Strauss poultry farm
Only poultry ostrich eggs with the stamp number 2-DE-0680392 and best before dates up to and including 24.11.2019 are affected. The eggs were sold within a radius of about 100 kilometers.
Consumers can return the eggs and get a refund of the purchase price.
How to recognize Salmonella disease
Salmonella disease manifests itself through diarrhoea, abdominal pain and vomiting. The disease can be life-threatening in infants, small children, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system. The incubation period is two to three days. Anyone experiencing symptoms of salmonella infection should see a doctor.
