Beware of Listeria! Aldi and Norma call back cold cuts

A manufacturer of cold cuts is recalling products that have been sold at the discounters Aldi and Norma. Consumption is not recommended because they could contain listeria.

The Schwarz Cranz company recalls pork and beef cold cuts. Listeria were found in the two products that were sold at Aldi and Norma.

According to customer information, Listeria was detected in the products as part of an analysis. Listeria can cause flu-like symptoms with fever and diarrhea. In particular, pregnant women, small children and people with a weakened immune system can cause serious illnesses (so-called listeriosis) as a result of consumption.

The manufacturer therefore advises against consuming the products. As a precaution, they have been withdrawn from the sale. Customers who have already bought the cold cuts are asked to bring them back to the respective sales outlet. The purchase price will then be refunded.

Pastrami was only sold in certain Aldi branches

The affected product of “Pastrami, 150 g” was sold exclusively in the Aldi companies Bargteheide, Berlin, Großbeeren, Hann. Münden, Nortorf and Seevetal sold. You can find out which company an Aldi branch belongs to on the discounter’s website under the heading “Branches and opening times”.
