RECALL: Listeria detected in popular supermarket goat’s cheese in Spain


A BATCH of a best selling goat’s cheese has been taken off the shelves after listeria was detected during the manufacture process.

The Rulo de Cabra sold at German supermarket giant Lidl has been removed and an immediate recall has been issued.

The recall notice was issued by the Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (AESAN) after tests at the manufacturers production plant detected the micro bacteria listeria monocytogenes during periodic quality controls.

Due to the result of the positive test, JERMI, the manufacturer of the product, has stopped production under the advice from food authorities and begun corrective measures.

The product affected is the 100g Rulo de Cabra manufactured by Jermi Kasewerk GBMH with an expiry date 11/06/2020, batch number 412.

A spokesman from the supermarket has urged anyone who has one of the affected cheeses to return it to the store for a full refund.

Lidl also reassured the public that so far there have been no confirmed cases in Spain related to the product.

This is not the first time the Listeria bacteria was detected in food products.

Last year, the largest outbreak of the virus was detected across the country after infected shredded meat was put into circulation, resulting in over 100 cases.
