Contaminated Danish sausages also sold in Germany

BERLIN (AP) — The German government says that some of the contaminated meat products that caused a listeria outbreak and may have killed 10 people in Denmark were also sold to a store in Germany.

The Ministry of Food and Agriculture says it was alerted by Danish authorities late Wednesday that a store near the German-Danish border carried the contaminated products, and the meat was immediately removed from the shelves.

The ministry said Thursday that it is not yet clear how long the store has offered the sausages and how many people bought them.

Danish ferry operator DFDS said the meat was also sold on its ferries to Norway.

The meat producer in Copenhagen, Denmark, was ordered shut earlier this week.
