Swedish supermarket chain Coop has recalled its in-store brand of fresh hamburger meat after a routine check revealed traces of salmonella in the meat.

Coop halted sales of its hamburger meat on Wednesday evening. The recall applies to Coop Hamburger 10x113 grammes, 4x113 grammes and 2x113 grammes, Coop Miniburger 8x56,5 grammes and Coop Megaburger 2x170 grammes.

The affected meat has been sold throughout Sweden and has a best-before date of August 5th, 2014. 

Supermarket chain Lidl has also stopped hamburger sales by the Svea Lantkött brand, after meat supplier Scan stated that the packages may contain salmonella.
