Eggs have been removed from the shelves in several German states.

Lohne. Because of possible salmonella contamination, the company Eifrisch is recalling its eggs in Hessen, Rheinland-Pfalz, NRW and other German states.

Eggs with the print number 2-DE-0351691 and best-before dates from 19 to 24 December 2018 are affected, the company from Lohne in northern Germany announced on Wednesday. The eggs were sold by the Netto stores in Bremen and in some areas of Lower Saxony. They were also sold by Lidl grocery stores in Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate. The eggs were also on the shelves of Aldi Nord in the regional branches of Horst and Großbeeren, at Rewe in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Brandenburg, and Kaufland stores in Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia.

An official investigation had found salmonella in the eggs. Consuming contaminated eggs could lead to nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, said Eifrisch. As a precaution, the company had the eggs removed from the shelves. Consumers should return them or dispose of them.
