The supplier of the product has already ordered it to be withdrawn from stores, the TASR newswire reported.

“Since the product in question might be present in shops in Slovakia, we recommend that consumers do not buy this product, not use any products already bought and if possible return [these] to the store,” said ÚVZ spokesperson Lenka Skalická, as quoted by TASR.

She added that if anyone finds the lasagne in a shop or cafeteria, they should report it to the regional public health authority.

Skalická also said that at the moment they are trying to withdraw the product from all places to which it could have been delivered, including cafeterias, the SITA newswire wrote.
