Suspicions of salmonella: recall of smoked raw ham from Alsace

While pizzas from the Buitoni brand, then Kinder chocolates, have successively been the subject of a recall, a new food is now in the sights of the health authorities. This is smoked raw ham from Alsace Supérieur, which is suspected of containing salmonella.

Recall Conso, the government site dedicated to dangerous product alerts, has raised awareness of the recall of this Maurer Tempé brand product this Thursday, April 7.

This ham is vacuum-packed and is marketed throughout France. However, it is mainly found in Mulhouse, through the Cooperative U, as well as in the Jura through the Colruyt company. It is also sold at Vents d’Est Anatol, located in Haute-Garonne, or at the Boucherie de la source in Lozère.

According to the consumer sheet, the ham was marketed between March 30 and April 7, and should not be consumed. It is also advisable to “destroy the product”. It bears lot number 22059 and was originally intended to be consumed until June 13, 2022.

Gastrointestinal disorders

“Food poisoning caused by salmonella results in gastrointestinal disorders (diarrhoea, vomiting) of sudden onset often accompanied by fever and headaches which generally occur six to seventy-two hours after consumption of the products contaminated”, also indicated Rappel Conso.

In addition, it is specified that the symptoms may be more “pronounced in young children, pregnant women, immunocompromised subjects and the elderly”.

Anyone who feels affected by this recall can contact, while consumers of Alsace smoked raw ham who show symptoms of this type are recommended to consult their doctor.
