Spain’s food alert comes after Italy detected two batches of sausages containing Listeria monocytogenes, as reported on Monday, September 26.

Spain’s Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition shared the alert on sausages from Italy with Listeria monocytogenes stating:

The Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition has become aware through the European Food Alert Network has become aware through the European Food Alert Network (RASFF) of an alert notification from the Italian health authorities concerning the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in sausages from Italy.

This alert has been notified in the framework of an outbreak of listeriosis in Italy and other European countries, with no associated cases known in Spain so far.

Following an inspection at the manufacturing plant, the presence of Listeria monocytogenes was found in two batches of products, only marketed in Italy.

It was also detected in the environmental sampling carried out in the establishment, so as a precautionary measure, all products produced in these facilities have been withdrawn as potentially affected.
