Finnish food group Paulig is recalling several products from the market after the discovery of listeria bacteria in two products in its home nation of Finland.
A spokesperson for the company announced on Friday that listeria was detected in two items from the Gold&Green Nyhtokaura pulled oats product range, in the course of in-factory checks in Finland last week, adding the products have already been recalled there.
While the precise products in which listeria bacteria was detected are not on sale in Estonia, the company says, as a precautionary measure, all Gold&Green Nyhtokaura range items produced in July this year are being recalled.
The products subject to the recall are 240-gram packages of Gold&Green Nyhtokaura Nude, 240-gram packages of Gold&Green Nyhtokaura Tomato, and 300-gram packages of Gold&Green Nyhtokaura Mexico, all of which are pulled oats products.
Paulig is also asking customers to return any unopened Gold&Green products they may have recently purchased to the stores where they were bought, for a full refund. Already-opened packages of the products should be safely disposed of and not consumed, the company says.
Systematic cleaning has been carried out at the Gold&Green factory in Järvenpää, Finland,and self-control procedures intensified.
