The Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (AESAN), dependent on the Ministry of Consumption, has been informed that a product for sale in Spain has had the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in Goat Cheese Roller from the Netherlands, marketed from Germany by the Jermi company and sold exclusively in supermarkets of the Lidl chain, which has already recalled the affected batch.

Health withdraws 13 more batches of French cheese for possible listeria and E.coli

The consumer agency has learned that, of all the batches and expiration dates of the affected product, it has only been distributed in Lidl establishments in Spain lot 412 with expiration date 11/06/2020.

It is recommended that people who have products affected by said alert at home, refrain from consuming them and return them to the point of purchase.

This information has been transferred by AESAN to all the autonomous communities through the Coordinated Rapid Information Exchange System (SCIRI) in order to continue the withdrawal of the affected products from the marketing channels. No case associated with this alert has been confirmed in Spain.

In the case of being pregnant, it is recommended to consult the recommendations for consumption during pregnancy made by the AESAN regarding practices of important food hygiene for pregnant women, as well as a list of the foods to avoid during pregnancy because they are associated with certain biological hazards (among which Listeria monocytogenes stands out).

AESAN recalls the importance of extreme hygiene measures to avoid cross contamination to other products.
