Pure Natural Food SA recalls “Back to roots” tigernut flour because checks have revealed the presence of salmonella in this product. As a health risk cannot be excluded, the FSVO recommends that the population not consume it and eliminate it.
This tigernuts flour is sold by packaging of 360 grams in several pharmacies and at “Hima la Vie” in Romanel-sur-Lausanne (VD). Its expiry date is set for August 30, 2021.
Salmonella are bacteria that cause disease in humans and animals, said the Federal Office for Food Safety and Veterinary Affairs (FSVO) Tuesday in a press release. In humans, they can trigger gastrointestinal disturbances with fever, as well as vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain within 6 to 72 hours after consumption.
People who have consumed this product are advised to consult a doctor in the event of the appearance of the aforementioned symptoms.
