The beautiful days are coming and are even already present at the end of May. So the time has come to take out the barbecue, whether with friends or family. Unfortunately, like all food products, sausages and merguez are not exempt from this list of recalls. Thus, this Tuesday, May 23, 2023, four new products were recalled due to the detection of Salmonella (agent responsible for salmonellosis).

Like Listeria monocytogenes (the agent responsible for listeriosis), Salmonella is a bacterium that can be dangerous to the health of potential consumers of contaminated products. It is often responsible for gastroenteritis and even typhoid fever.

As the Rappel-conso site mentions, “food poisoning caused by salmonella results in gastrointestinal disorders (diarrhea, vomiting) of sudden onset often accompanied by fever and headaches which generally occur 6 a.m. to 72 hours after consumption of the contaminated products.These symptoms may be more pronounced in young children, pregnant women, immunocompromised subjects and the elderly.People who have consumed these products and who present these symptoms are invited to consult their doctor. by reporting this consumption. In the absence of symptoms within 7 days after consumption of the products concerned, there is no need to worry and consult a doctor. If the product must be cooked before consumption: cooking through products (boiled eggs, pastries, poultry meat, etc.) at 65°C destroys these bacteria and prevents the consequences of such contamination.”

As expected, find below the various information you need to know about the four products recalled by Rappel-conso.
