Delika, a Danish deli producer from Aalborg, is recalling six different meat products because they may contain the potentially deadly bacteria listeria.

The recalled products are various types of salami cuts, including brawn slices, brawn turkey slices, traditional Danish cold cuts (rullepølse), pork cuts (mesterpålæg hamburgerryg), smoked pork cuts (mesterpålæg røget rullepølse) and a pork product named ‘slagtermesterens hovmesterskinke’.

All of the potentially contaminated products have package dates ranging from 7 November to 6 December 2016.

Most of the meat cuts are sold in the supermarkets Rema 1000 and in other smaller stores, while ‘slagtermesterens hovmesterskinke’ is sold in Bilka and Føtex.

Consumers who have purchased any of these products are advised to discard them or return them to the store where they were purchased.

According to Fødevarestyrelsen, the Danish food administration, listeria can cause flu-like symptoms: fever, headache and gastrointestinal problems.

The bacteria is particularly dangerous to pregnant women, newborns, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.
