Lidl has withdrawn two lots of Bergmann-branded minced beef after a control sample of one lot was suspected of being contaminated with salmonella.

The recall involves packages with "best before" dates of 12.2.2019 and 14.2.2019. The products had been on sale nationwide from 4 February.

Lidl is asking consumers who have purchased the affected products and may have frozen them to return them to Lidl supermarkets for a refund.

The German supermarket chain also said Monday that it has suspended cooperation with the Skare meat company over three other instances of salmonella contamination.

Salmonella was also detected in similar products sold by the same supplier at the end of January.
