Internal checks by distributor COOP found incidences of the diarrhea and vomit-inducing Campylobacter bacteria in 400 gram packages of the 'Rå Rodskårne Champingnon' mushroom product. The offensive fungi was pulled from the shelves of Kvickly, SuperBrugsen, Dagli Brugsen, Lokal Brugsen, Fakta and Irma supermarkets throughout the country.
