According to the report, customers who have purchased the corresponding product may give this for a refund of the purchase price, even without presentation of the receipts in your shopping sites.

Triggers of gastro-intestinal diseases

Salmonella are bacteria that can be the trigger of some serious stomach/intestinal disease (salmonellosis).

Such diseases manifest themselves within a few days after infection with diarrhea, abdominal pain and occasionally vomiting and slight fever.

“The discomfort will generally disappear after several days,” writes the company.

But: “in Particular, infants, young children, the elderly, and people with a weakened immune system may develop more severe courses of the disease.”

If the symptoms are severe consult a doctor

The company indicates that people who have eaten this food and severe or persistent symptoms develop, consult medical help and a possible Salmonella infection should point out.

To go without symptoms as a preventive measure in medical treatment, however, is not useful.
