This information has been transferred by the Asean to all the autonomous communities and that of Madrid has been informed of the distribution made in its territory to proceed with its withdrawal.

Health highlights the possibility of "cross contamination"to other foods and therefore calls for extreme handling care, especially in the event that contact has been made with the aforementioned products.

Public Health explains that listeriosis is an infectious disease whose main route of transmission is food, due to contamination of processed foods in which there had been some alteration in production, such as inadequate heat treatment, a failure in the cold chain, or packaging and / or transport defects.

The Directorate General adds that in most cases it is a mild infection and that it often "goes unnoticed by the healthy population."

The most serious forms (sepsis and meningitis), affect pluripatological and immunocompromised patients, which determines that on some occasions, in recent years, there has been some death in patients with this disease.
