Four people in a family in Gothenburg suffered from botulism, a very rare but dangerous type of food poisoning.
For this reason, Eldsberga chark recalls its product "Suha Bosan Point", Smoked beef from Bosnia in Swedish.
The meat, totaling more than 40 kilograms with Holland as its country of origin, has been sold in bulk at, among other places, the Orient House between that 7 and 20 November. The meat has also been found in sandwiches sold by a baguette cafe.
Sime Trosic is the CEO of Eldsberga chark.
– It's hell that someone may have suffered badly because of our products. I have children myself and can hardly describe how it would feel if they floated between life and death, he says.
Sime Trosic does not believe that the infection comes from his company. If this turns out to be the case, he will put down Eldsberga chark, which, according to Sime, has been driven flawlessly in the last fifteen years.
– If it turns out that I had a life-threatening product on the market, then I do not want to be anymore. No question about it.
– This is not about common stomach ache. Somebody could have died, he says.

The investigation continues
The revocation is made "for cautionary reasons" and according to the National Food Administration, it has not yet been established that botulism as the four family members suffered from beef. The Authority continues to investigate the source of infection together with Göteborgs Environmental Management and Eldsberga Chark.
– According to the Swedish Food and Drug Administration, I can work as usual, they found no mistakes in our routines, says Sime Trosic.
He urges customers who bought "Suha Bosan Point" during the current period of time to advertise it at the place of purchase.
The four affected family members have been printed from the hospital and are on the improvement path.
– I'm glad they're on the improvement path, that's the most important, says Sime Trosic.
No further cases of botulism have been found.
