The Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition has informed us, through the Coordinated System for the Rapid Exchange of Information (SCIRI), an alert regarding the presence of Salmonella in neutral gelatin sheets of the Hacendado brand , from Germany, transferred by the health authorities of the Autonomous Community of Madrid.

The company that markets the product in Spain has issued an official statement that it publishes on its website in order to withdraw the affected product from the market.

The AESAN has transferred this information to the competent authorities of the autonomous communities through the SCIRI and to the Services of the European Commission through the European Food Alert Network (RASFF), in order to verify the withdrawal of the products affected marketing channels.

With the information available , there is no record in Spain of any reported case associated with this alert.

People who have products affected by this alert at home are recommended to refrain from consuming them and return them to the point of purchase.
