Listeria outbreak in Denmark

According to mass media more than 10 people died of listeriosis implicating meat products in Denmark within the last 2 days.

Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance analyzed violations of Danish product export to Russia detected within last two years. Thus, according to available information in 2014 Rosselkhoznadzor imposed temporary restrictions on product export as two Danish establishments (GL 401, DK 4518) violated veterinary and phytosanitary safety requirements of the Russian Federation. The cause for introduction of restrictions was detection of Listeria and E.Coli in exported products. Moreover, other 12 establishments exporting fish products and sea food, offals, proteins, animal feeds and poultry meat were notified about the detected violations. Rosselkhoznadzor took similar measures last year. Thus, in 2013 the Service imposed temporary restrictions on product export from 7 Danish establishments due to detection of cadmium, arsenic, E. Coli and excessive amount of mesophilic aerobic and facultative anaerobic microorganisms. 22 more establishments were notified on detected violations.
