Company that is recalling:
REMA Distribution A/S

An error occurred during the packaging of the products, which means that the cans may be perforated and thus contaminated. The products are therefore unsuitable as food.

The small perforations in the cans create a risk that fermentation may occur in the products and that the contents of the cans may be exposed to microbiological contamination with e.g. bacteria. The perforation can also mean that the products can develop a different smell.

Advice to consumers:
The Danish Food and Food Administration advises consumers to return the products to the store where they were bought, or to discard them.
