This ready-made sauce from the health food store can contain dangerous germs

The Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety and the manufacturer dennree are recalling a Bolognese sauce. Apparently the sauce was not heated sufficiently during production. This leads to premature growth of microorganisms.

For reasons of preventive consumer protection, the manufacturer dennree calls back the article "dennree poultry bolognese" in 350 grams of glass. The affected product has a best-before date of November 1st, 2020. As the manufacturer reports, the product was sold at "denn's organic market" and in other health food stores.

Production errors can be recognized when opening

According to the manufacturer, some of the glasses have not been heated sufficiently during production. "This can lead to undesirable growth of microorganisms," Dennree writes. Customers could recognize this from an overpressure in the glass. If an audible gas escapes when the glass is opened, the sauce could be affected by an excessive amount of microorganisms, reports the manufacturer.

The sauce should not be consumed

Although only a part of the glasses are affected, all glasses have already been removed from the sale. "Customers who have purchased this product are asked not to consume the product," warns dennree. Instead, the poultry bolognese can be brought back to the point of sale. There, the money will be refunded even without a receipt.

Microorganisms - a wide range of potential pathogens

As reported by the Lower Saxony State Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety, pathogenic microorganisms in food pose a particular risk potential. Since it is unclear which pathogen is involved in the current recall, the spectrum ranges from listeria and salmonella to staphylococci and noroviruses to EHEC and other germs. Diseases caused by these pathogens are often manifested by symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. However, there are also pathogens that trigger more serious symptoms, warns the state office. (vb)
