Expiry Date

dm drogerie markt is recalling the item “dmBio pepper black, whole grains,
70 g” for reasons of preventive consumer protection. Goods with a best before date of 09/2025 and 11/2025 are affected .

Reason for the recall: It cannot be ruled out that salmonella may occur in the article mentioned above. This was determined during internal controls. Eating foods contaminated with salmonella can cause diarrhea, abdominal pain, and occasionally vomiting and a slight fever. The symptoms usually go away on their own after a few days. A doctor should be consulted if symptoms are severe or persistent.

Other products in the dmBio range are not affected. The best before date (MHD) is easy to see on the back of the packaging.

Customers are asked not to consume the product with the above-mentioned BBD and to return it to the dm branches unopened or already opened. The purchase price will of course be refunded – even without presenting the receipt.

If you have any questions, the dm customer service is available: 0800 – 365 86 33 (free of charge) Mon – Fri 07:30 – 17:30 or
