German authorities say meat products from a Danish firm that has been closed over a listeria outbreak also were sold at a store in Germany.

The government of Schleswig-Holstein state said Thursday that the company delivered 160 kilograms (353 pounds) of meat products to the store in Harrislee, just south of the Danish border, in late May. The batch was sold over the following month.
