The beef comes from Ireland and the pork from Denmark. The salmonella was found in a routine check.
The total meat affected is 2.4 tonnes of beef and 80 kilos of pork. A spokeswoman for Ica says that most of the meat has likely been sold, since it went on the shelves almost a week ago, on the 20th of January.
She says that they found salmonella in their meat twice last year, and says this is not much, considering the large volumes of meat they handle.
Customers who think they have become ill as a result of mincemeat should ring a doctor. Ica will pay compensation for any consequences of being infected with the dangerous bacteria.
