Jumbo has decided to immediately remove 130 types of meat products from the shelves in connection with a possible infection with the intestinal bacterium listeria.
Jumbo has been informed by Offerman, the meat product supplier, that their production site may be contaminated with the listeria bacteria. Aldi, Sligro and Versunie are also customers of this producer. Whether these supermarkets recall meat products is not yet known.
On Thursday evening, Jumbo published a list of meat products that may be contaminated with the bacteria. The supermarket asks customers not to consume and return these meat products. Meat products that are still on the shelves are safe to consume.
Consuming the meat products that are contaminated with the listeria bacteria can cause consumers stomach and intestinal problems that can be harmful to health. Children, the elderly and pregnant women are particularly sensitive to the intestinal bacteria.
Meat production at the Offerman factory in Aalsmeer has been temporarily suspended.
