Lidl Sweden is expanding its recall with Fresh Sausage Kielbasa from the Svea Lantkött brand after analyzes that show that this sausage may contain Salmonella. Lidl recalled Fresh Sausage Ramslök & Vitlök from Svea Lantkött for the same reason on 5 July.
Salmonella has been detected after a routine analysis. We would like to urge all our customers who bought the sausage to come back to us with the product. The relevant best-before date 2020-07-18 has been sold in all of Lidl Sweden stores. Salmonella poses no risk if you have heated the food to at least 70 degrees.
The recall only concerns the product:
