The Romanian food safety agency has stepped up controls after repeated recalls of fish products because of Listeria.
Eight recalls have been issued since the start of this year for Listeria in salmon involving retailers such as Auchan, Kaufland and Carrefour.
The National Sanitary Veterinary and Food Safety Authority (ANSVSA) commissioned enhanced controls following the incidents. The agency has not reported any related illnesses.
During these checks, samples were taken from different batches of finished items and from areas of production and packaging of finished products with processed samples sent to laboratories for analysis. Results showed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in smoked salmon fillet finished product samples from two unnamed fish processing units.
