Listeria Update: A lot of new info has surfaced. Spain issued an international alert on Thursday with European authorities and the World Health Organization (WHO) “given the possibility that cases might be detected in other countries,” should tourists visiting the country have consumed the affected products.
It emerged on Friday that the carne mechada produced by Magrudis had been sold on to a firm called Comercial Martínez León for resale with a different brand name. The authorities were not aware of this fact until August 20, five days after the initial health alert was raised. These products were in circulation until they were ordered to be withdrawn on August 21.
“If the larding needles were contaminated, there is no doubt that other areas of the production line were too,” said Juan José Rodríguez, a professor at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and a member of the Spanish Society of Food Safety. Rodríguez explained that the “larding needle is an instrument used to fill raw meat, meaning that the bacteria should not survive the roasting process, and the final contamination may have taken place during another moment on the production line.” He added that the results were “worrying, because they reveal widespread contamination that was unknown to the heads of the company.” As well as carne mechada, Magrudis also produces eight more products at its plant. The central Health Ministry in Madrid advised on Thursday that consumers should not eat any of the products made by the Seville-based firm.
