Consumption: Contaminated with listeria, sausages kill three people and are withdrawn throughout Europe

A wave of recalls has been launched across Europe for frankfurters produced in Italy. Three people have died after consuming it.

It was from the Agricola Tre Valli cooperative based in Verona that the alert was launched throughout Europe on frankfurters sold under several brands in many countries and at practically all distributors.

The cooperative has activated a voluntary procedure to withdraw certain batches of its own sausage production for several days. And for good reason, no less than 70 cases of Listeria have been recorded causing the death of three people in Italy. Immunocompromised subjects who had consumed these sausages which, according to several media, would have suffered, in their manufacture, packaging or transport from the high temperatures which have affected Europe in recent weeks.

In a communication, the cooperative thus evokes “incorrect storage of the product and non-compliance with the cooking instructions on the label which could make the food unfit for consumption from a microbiological point of view”.

In France, the withdrawal relates to three products: Pavo Wurstel, Golosino di pollo and tacchino as well as Wudy Wurstel and its derivatives (see list below).

The list of distributors concerned soon established

The health authorities indicate that this withdrawal concerns all of France while research is still underway to determine in which stores these sausages were sold.

People who have consumed the withdrawn products and who have fever, isolated or accompanied by headaches, and body aches, are invited to consult their doctor and report this consumption. Severe forms with neurological complications and maternal or fetal damage in pregnant women can also sometimes occur.

Pregnant women as well as immunocompromised people and the elderly should be especially alert to these symptoms. Listeriosis is a disease that can be serious and has an incubation period of up to eight weeks.
