Spice manufacturer Hartkorn is calling curry spices off the market due to Salmonella
Due to a salmonella find, the manufacturer Hartkorn is recalling its curry mix from the trade. The rod-shaped bacteria were detected in two batches. The curry spices are sold all over Germany, which is why the recall applies nationwide. Consumers are encouraged not to consume the mixtures under any circumstances, but to return them to the retailer for a refund of the purchase price.
Discovered in two curry batches of salmonella
The spice manufacturer Hartkorn has launched a recall campaign for two batches of its curry mixes. In two batches of production, Salmonella was discovered during controls in the laboratory. "Salmonella was detected in a sample during a routine examination," as the managing director of the Koblenz spice manufacturer, Andreas Hartkorn, announced on Friday. The curry packs have already been delivered nationwide. The managing director cannot yet say how the bacteria got into the curry. But it is possible that the germs were already in the raw material. Instead of eating the spice, customers should bring the mixes back to the store. The sales price will then be reimbursed there.
According to the manufacturer, the curry packs are spices in a can with the batch number L20915F2 (EAN code: 40526065) and packaging in bags with the number L20909F2 (EAN code: 4052600051032). Consumers should not use the products and take them to the supermarket.
Spices are often only added at the end of cooking
According to the state investigation office, the warning should be taken seriously. Because "the problem is that spices are often added at the end of cooking and then are no longer heated sufficiently," as a spokeswoman emphasized. "The bacteria are only killed at a temperature of 70 degrees Celsius."
Salmonella pathogens cause diarrheal diseases in healthy people, which usually heal spontaneously even without the use of antibiotics. However, babies, children, seniors and immunocompromised people are at risk. Serious illnesses can be caused here. With salmonellosis caused by salmonella, patients first experience abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, and diarrhea. The loss of fluid can lead to internal dehydration. (sb)
