Food Safety News

Almost 50 people are sick in France with Salmonella infections after eating a type of dry cured sausage from Spain.

In total, 45 people have been affected including 27 children. All sick people interviewed so far mentioned eating fuet before onset of symptoms.

Strains of monophasic Salmonella typhimurium sharing the same genetic characteristics were identified between June 24 and July 15 by the National Reference Center for Salmonella. This means they are likely to be from the same source.

The link with consumption of fuet produced by the Spanish company Embutidos Caula SL was made by the General Directorate of Food (DGAL), General Directorate of Health and Santé Publique France.

All batches and dates of fuet sold under different brand names that are marked ES 10.01865/GE CE have been withdrawn from sale or recalled.
