Several of Sweden's leading food chains have recalled veal mince following the second scandal this month involving supermarket meat.
Axfood, the company which owns Willys and Hemköp said on Thursday that it was taking veal mincemeat with the Garant label off shelves around the country.
 
In a press statement, it confirmed that suspected salmonella had been discovered in some of the produce.
 
The recall applies to 15 percent veal mince weighing 500g produced on March 14th this year and with a best before date of March 22nd.
 
It is the second major salmonella scare in Sweden in just ten days.
 
Earlier this month, the Ica supermarket group announced that 13 different mince products were being withdrawn across Sweden.

Salmonella can lead to diarrhoea, fever, stomach cramps and cause people to throw up. However most people affected recover without needing medical treatment.

Axfood runs 262 stores around Sweden and collaborates with approximately 820 proprietor-run stores.

It's the concept behind Fieldwork Education's International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), a curriculum designed specifically to suit the developing adolescent brain.
