Salmonella salmon also in spreads and salads
The smoked salmon from fish company Foppen which may be infected with salmonella has also been used in salads and spreads, the Dutch food safety body NVWA says on its website.
The contaminated products have been removed from supermarket shelves but the NVWA says consumers should not eat any Foppen products still in their fridges. In the Netherlands, Foppen supplies fish products to supermarket chains Albert Heijn, Plus and Aldi.
The source of the infection has not yet been traced but Foppen said earlier this week there is a large chance the infected fish comes from its Greek production line.
Some 200 people in the Netherlands and over 100 in the US have become ill after eating the salmon, which is infected by a variety of the infection known as Thompson Salmonella.
