FOOD ALERT: Susaeta Pigs Heads Infected by Listeria


A food recall alert has been issued by the health authority in Andalucia who are urging consumers not to eat the product

The Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (AESAN), a body supervised by the Ministry of Consumption, has issued an alert for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes contained in pork produced in Spain.

The affected product would have been initially distributed in Andalucia and Castilla-La Mancha, although it hasn’t been ruled out that it may have been distributed in other autonomous communities across Spain.

The alert has come through the Coordinated System for Rapid Information Exchange (SCIRI), thanks to a notification sent by the health authorities of the Basque Country. Specifically, it refers to the cooked pig’s head of the ‘Susaeta’ brand and the alert affects all the lots that are currently on the market.

The products involved are:
  • Product name (on the label): Cooked pig’s head
  • Brand: Susaeta
  • Lot number: all those currently on the market
  • Expiration date: all
  • Unit Weight: 100g

Although at the moment there are reported cases associated with this alert, AESAN recommends that people who have the product indicated above in their homes refrain from consuming it and return it to the points of sale.

In the case of having consumed the pork head meat and presenting any symptoms compatible with listeriosis (fever, headache, vomiting, or diarrhea), it is recommended to go immediately to a health center.

As the agency has warned, the consumption of products containing listeria can pose a serious health risk, especially in the case of immunosuppressed people, pregnant women, and cancer patients.
