New alert for listeriosis in pork rinds from a company in Mlaga – La Provincia

The Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía has communicated to the Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition the declaration of a new health alert for the consumption of the product 'Chicharrón Especial', of the La Montanera del Sur brand, which produces the company Incarybe S.L., domiciled in the Malaga municipality of Benaoján.

The alert is motivated because the aforementioned product of that firm, 'Chicharrón Especial', tested positive for provisional listeria analysis which has been carried out by the Junta de Andalucía, as reported in a statement by the Ministry of Health and Families, which, as a precaution, has immobilized all the products of the brand 'La Montanera del Sur', after whose consumption has tested positive in the listeria analysis a 47 year old male.

The company has stopped production voluntarily and the Junta de Andalucía has decreed the precautionary closure of the factory and the precautionary immobilization of all products of this firm.

This is the third alert for listeriosis activated from Andalusia during the summer, after the health alert decreed in August for the consumption of the Mecha brand 'La Mechá' produced by the Magrudis company, which has generated more than 200 affected in the autonomous community and three deaths, and after the food alert announced last Friday by the aforementioned bacteria in relation to the 'Sabores de Paterna' meat.
