Customers have been infected with listeria.
This is an infectious disease of humans and animals caused by pathogenic representatives of the genus Listeria.
It is characterized by multiple sources and channels of infection, diverse routes and factors of infection, high mortality among newborns and persons with immune deficiency.
The Netherlands National Institute of He alth (RIVM) announced three deaths in the last two years. A woman had a miscarriage. A total of 20 cases of infection have been detected.
In Germany, two elderly people also died of listeria after consuming Wilke sausages from the manufacturer Waldecker Fleisch-und Wurstwaren. The Robert Koch Institute proved that their deaths, as well as the diagnosis of 37 other people, were caused by listeria contamination from meat products.
On Thursday, Wilke filed for bankruptcy. The company has been around for 80 years.
Grocery chains Jumbo and Aldi began refusing to sell Offerman's products, including ham, chicken and bacon.
