The Chief Sanitary Inspectorate (PIS) withdrew further batches of halva from sale. This is the third such case this year. All because of a gross negligence on the part of the sweets manufacturer.
Since the beginning of the year, the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate (GIS) has issued several warnings regarding the popular halva. The presence of a dangerous bacteria – salmonella – was detected in sweets. Therefore, the State Sanitary Inspection carried out an inspection at the plant producing this popular delicacy. Its results are surprising.
All batches of halva withdrawn from circulation
“During the official inspection, it was found that there were gross sanitary violations at the production plant (Elis Ali Eski ul. Gdyńska 32, 80-209 Tuchom – editor’s note). Therefore, it was considered that the manufacturer was unable to ensure the safety of the products placed on the market and therefore it is necessary to withdraw all products, regardless of the batch number, marked with the dates of minimum durability “best used before 09/07/2025” and earlier dates,” we read in the announcement published by the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate (GIS). The State District Sanitary Inspector in Kartuzy banned further production of foodstuffs in the indicated enterprise.
The presence of salmonella was found in halva produced by Elis Ali Eski. Infection with this bacterium mainly causes symptoms related to the digestive system (diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, nausea), but the infection may also affect other areas of the body (e.g. the cardiovascular system) and lead to serious complications (including pneumonia). , endocardium, bones, etc.). In some cases, salmonella infection even results in the development of sepsis (septicemia).
What to do with contaminated halva?
Halva produced by the Elis Ali Eski plant should be returned to the store immediately (consumption may result in poisoning). The plant has already taken the necessary actions to withdraw the sweets from sale. Customers who purchased infected goods can receive a refund.
