Lidl has to pull tons of meat from Poland: it contains antibiotics

Czech food inspectors have ordered the Lidl chain to withdraw approximately 17.5 tons of minced pork from Poland. They found the limit of antibiotics exceeded sixty times! People should not eat this meat and return it to the store.

The State Veterinary Administration (SVS) of the Czech Republic has ordered the recall from the market minced pork, which is sold in the Lidl chain. Laboratory examination revealed a higher-limiting content of the antibiotic amoxicillin in a cut of meat from Poland. It may cause allergic reactions in some people.

“JRC inspectors sampled the product from a consignment of pork imported from Poland. Subsequent examination showed a content much higher than the maximum limit of amoxicillin in the sample. The detected value was 60 times higher than the limit” SVS spokesperson Peter Forlisek points out.

The meat is marked as Minced Pork 20%, weight 1 kg, batch number: 207237 with an expiration date of October 10, 2021.

They immediately set out to investigate the case, but found that in the meantime the meat was used for production. On October 3, all quantities were shipped to Lidl chain warehouses. And the inspectors ordered to withdraw the product from the stores and dispose of it later.

“Consumers who have meat at home should definitely not eat it and can take it back to the store where they bought it.” calls on JRC.
