Austria – Balik Pearls – Salmon Caviar 100g – Listeria monocytogenes


On behalf of the Federal Ministry for Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection (BMSGPK), AGES warns against the product “Balik Pearls – salmon caviar” 100g from the German manufacturer Caviar House & Prunier City GmbH with the best before date December 31, 2023 due to contamination with Listeria. These bacteria can cause serious, often fatal, diseases in immunocompromised people, the elderly and pregnant women. Pregnant women also run the risk of infecting the unborn child with the risk of premature delivery or stillbirth.

  •     Description of the goods: “Balik Pearls – salmon caviar” 100g
  •     Batch number: 113023
  •     Best before date: 12/31/2023
  •     Manufacturer: Caviar House & Prunier City GmbH, Germany
  •     Distributor: REWE International

The product was also available in Austrian grocery stores (Billa / Billa Plus) and has since been recalled. Since it cannot be ruled out that such products are still in stock in Austrian households, urgent warnings are given against consumption.

This warning does not imply that the health hazard of the goods was caused by the producer, manufacturer, importer or distributor. AGES asks consumers not to consume the affected product under any circumstances, but to dispose of it immediately or to complain to the distributor. The official food control authorities of the federal states take further measures if necessary.
