The cooperative, which is part of the Veronesi groupunderlined that this decision on the sausages has been taken exclusively as a precaution, since incorrect storage of the product and the failure to follow cooking instructions on the label may make the food unfit for consumption from a microbiological point of view.
Agricola Tre Valli also clarified that, given the extraordinarily hot summer which has just passed, it is possible that the products in question, once purchased, were transported, stored incorrectly and then consumed by not following the instructions on the label.
Withdrawal, according to the press release published on the company’s websiterelates only to sausages produced and remaining on the market after the summer.
They are identifiable by the stamp CE IT 04 M and expiry date until December 5, 2022 included. These are, of course, references that are only valid in Italy.
The company Agricola Tre Valli insists that she proceeded to this withdrawal as a precaution with these sausages.
All self-monitoring analyzes carried out by the company on the same batches which are withdrawn and the official samples taken on the territory by the competent authorities absolutely give a microbiological result Compliant with current regulationsshe insists.
Health alert and 3 deaths in Italy
The cooperative has activated this health alert due to fears of the spread of Listeria in Italy.
Indeed, the Italian Ministry of Health, on high alertreported that there have been at least three deaths and almost 70 clinical cases throughout Italy due to listeria bacteria.
These deaths due to listeriosis have occurred, as confirmed by ministerial sources in Ansa, Lombardy, Piedmont and Emilia-Romagna, respectively in December 2021, March 2022 and June 2022.
They all concerned particularly fragile or immunocompromised people.
