Second brand affected by salmonella
(CS) After food safety authorities recalled gluten free chocolate bars by Italian brand Schär over salmonella, contaminated samples were also found in products distributed by Belgian brand Damhert.
Luxembourg food safety authorities published the first recall notice last week. Produced in the Netherlands, gluten free chocolate wafer bars by Damhert, marketed under the name Taste It! are now also being recalled.
Product batches 5146, 2141 and 5196, with expiry dates July 31 and September 30 next year, have been found to contain salmonella.
Customers who bought these products are advised not to eat them. The products have been pulled from the shelves of local supermarkets, but affected items have already been sold.
Salmonella infections include symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal cramps, but also fevers and headaches.
