Salmonella bacteria according to Encyclopedia Britannica is (genus Salmonella), group of rod-shaped, gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic bacteria in the family Enterobacteriaceae. Their principal habitat is the intestinal tract of humans and other animals. Some species exist in animals without causing disease symptoms; others can result in any of a wide range of mild to serious infections termed salmonellosis in humans. Most human infections with Salmonella result from the ingestion of contaminated food or water.
Recently, Nestle Philippines recalled its Maggi Rich Mami Noodles in Beef flavor found to be infected with Salmonella bacteria. The company voluntarily pulled-out all their Maggi products in chicken and beef flavors from the supermarket shelves, particularly those with batch numbers 11020598A2 and 11030598A1.
If you are not yet aware of the issue and still have stocks of Maggi Rich Mami Noodles, especially the beef flavor, don’t fret. Just look at the back of the label and see if it has the same batch numbers as those found to have been infected with Salmonella.
