Minced beef produced by Frank’s Kød Engros contains salmonella, warns the Danish Ministry for Food.

The meat producer is now recalling the infected product and consumers who might still have the meat are encouraged to return it back to where they bought it.

The infected beef was produced on April 23 and contained less than 12 percent of fat.

Can cause diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting
Although the expiration date has already passed, some people may still have the meat stored in freezers.

If the meat is not thoroughly cooked it may cause salmonella infection. Symptoms include diarrhoea, nausea, abdominal pain, fever, and vomiting.
