Among the seven different recalls, five of them are due to the presence of Listeria monocytogenes. This bacterium that causes listeriosis is particularly dangerous in “pregnant women as well as immunocompromised people and the elderly”, as Rappel Conso reports. The most common symptoms are: headaches, fever or body aches.
According to the Department of Health’s website, “Human contamination by Listeria is mainly food”. Indeed, it is specified that the products most at risk are “dairy products – in particular raw milk cheeses – certain deli meats, seafood and vegetables. In practice, the bacterium can contaminate food at all stages of the food chain by colonizing food manufacturing sites “As it is sensitive to heat, it is normally absent from cooked and canned foods, unless contamination occurs after cooking”. ability to grow at low temperatures, Listeria is “often present in refrigerated foods with long shelf lives”.
However, other routes of transmission exist with the exception of food but they are rare, This is particularly the case of “contamination of the fetus during pregnancy or contamination of the newborn during childbirth”.
Regarding the other two items, they are recalled due to a labeling error, which does not mention the presence of allergenic products and due to an incorrect histamine level. Histamine food poisoning is responsible for acute allergies and occurs only 30 to 60 minutes after eating the dish.
