Listeria: companies, brands and products involved

The products and names of companies and brands of frankfurters responsible for cases of listeria infection

The number of cases of listeria infection, also called listeriosis, seems stable but the withdrawal of the products responsible for the reports continues in Italy and in the countries of the European Union.

THE DATA

According to the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (Rasff) of the European Commission, 66 people are infected and 3 deaths. The notification was inserted by Italy on 2 August after the cases reported by the Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna regions.

THE WRONG GUILTY

However, as can also be seen in the image, an error continues to persist in the card. Initially, in fact, the investigations of the regional health authorities focused on a cheese, but the analyzes gave negative results. Only on 12 September, more than a month later, did the focus shift to another product: sausages. On the card, however, it still says that the product responsible for listeria cases would be cheese.

MISTERY SOLVED

It was possible to trace the offending product because one of the patients had at home still intact packs of two batches of Eurospin's Töbias frankfurters, which from the analyzes were found to be contaminated by the same strain of listeria of the outbreak.

The clues then led straight to San Martino Buon Albergo, in the province of Verona, to the factory of the producer, the agricultural cooperative Agricola Tre Valli. The inspection, as also stated in the note from the Ministry of Health, confirmed the presence of environmental contamination.

WHICH BRANDS ARE INVOLVED IN LISTERIA CASES

The next step was to proceed with the precautionary withdrawal of some lots (1785417 and 01810919) of sausages marketed by the company under different brands , which in addition to the aforementioned Töbias by Eurospin, are the well-known Wudy Aia, Golo, Wurs, Pavo, Salchichia , AV5 and Salumeo di Lidl.

WHICH PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN WITHDRAWN

In the notice issued by Agricola Tre Valli we read that the company "informs that, for precautionary reasons due to a microbiological risk, some batches of sausages produced in the summer with the manufacturer's identification mark IT04MCE have been withdrawn from the shop deadline from 20.09.2022 to 05.12.2022 ". According to Repubblica , 4 million packages have already been withdrawn in Italy.

In particular, these are Aia Wudy Classico Snack, Aia Wudy Cheese and Aia Wudy Classico.

For those in possession of these products, Agricola Tre Valli recommends that you carefully read the storage instructions on the label or return it for a replacement.

For more information, you can contact the company on the toll-free number 800 905232 from Monday to Saturday, from 8.00 to 17.00.

SOME NUMBERS ON THE AGRICULTURAL TRE VALLI

The Trevalli Cooperlat company, reads the website , is made up of 11 cooperative members located in 7 regions, while "the main office is in Jesi in the province of Ancona, where the site with the most important production capacity is located and where a large part of the production, with the exception of cheeses, mozzarella, ricotta and yoghurt ".

"The members of the Trevalli Cooperlat cooperative – continues the description – are agricultural entrepreneurs […] But unlike other cooperatives, which have remained perched in their niche market, Trevalli Cooperlat has acted with foresight in the industrial area, in order to propose to the market for new products which, appropriately enhanced by careful marketing, have ensured the rapid and economically sound development of the Company ".

Trevalli Cooperlat closed 2021 with a turnover of 212,171 million euros .
