18 Colruyt stores recall country steak

Microbiological checks by the Colruyt Group laboratory have revealed the presence of Salmonella in the country steak product. For this reason, Colruyt decided to remove this product from the shelves in consultation with the FASFC (Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain).

Colruyt Belgium asks its customers not to consume this product and to bring it back to the store. The product will be refunded. 

Only 18 stores are involved: Colruyt Antwerp-South, Balen, Bouillon, Courcelles, Dampremy, Deurne-North, Eupen, Evere (Haachtsesteenweg), Haacht, Kelmis, Laken, Lanaken, Maaseik, Molenbeek, Schaarbeek (Jeruzalemstraat), Stabroek and the temporary stores of Kessel-Lo and Lede. Meanwhile, the country steaks in these stores have been removed from the shelves.

Possible symptoms of Salmonella infection
Possible symptoms of Salmonella infection are fever, stomach cramps and diarrhoea. These symptoms usually occur within 12 to 48 hours after the infection. 

The symptoms usually last 4 to 7 days and most people recover without specific treatment. Young children, pregnant women, people with decreased immunity and elderly people are risk groups. For them, the symptoms may be more serious and result in hospitalisation. 

If you have eaten this country steak and have these symptoms, consult your family doctor.
