Wrong best before date: Lidl recalls eggs
The discounter Lidl recalls eggs from the Dutch company Omega. Some packs have an expiration date that is too long. If eggs are stored too long or incorrectly, health-threatening bacteria can multiply.

Eggs recalled for wrong best before date
As announced on Wednesday, the discounter Lidl is recalling eggs from the Dutch company Omega because of an incorrect best before date. According to a message from the company based in Neckarsulm near Heilbronn, the eggs would be sold in Lidl branches in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. Due to a labeling error, the expiry date was too long on different packaging. Instead of the correct date, April 7th, June 7th should be given.

Do not consume affected products
Affected are “Fresh eggs from free range” (size M, L), pack of 10, “Organic eggs” (size M, L, XL), pack of 10 and “Fresh free range eggs” (size M, L) , Pack of 10; all with the best before 07.06. As the shelf life cannot be guaranteed by the date specified, customers should no longer consume the products mentioned. According to the company, the food was taken off the shelves. Eggs that have already been sold will be taken back by the discounter. The purchase price will also be reimbursed without presentation of the receipt.

Incorrectly stored eggs can lead to health problems

Eggs are usually stable for at least 28 days after the laying date. The best way to store eggs is to keep them in the egg compartment of the fridge with the pointed end down. If eggs are stored improperly or for too long, salmonella can multiply explosively and endanger health. Salmonella are bacteria that can cause various diseases in humans - especially in the gastrointestinal area. After eating, symptoms such as abdominal pain, fever, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting can occur. Such symptoms can occur especially in toddlers, immunocompromised people and seniors. (ad)
