Food Safety News

Smoked and graved salmon continues to pose a Listeria infection risk with evidence showing a large proportion of listeriosis cases are caused by these products, according to scientists in Germany.

In 2021 and 2022, there were 66 cases of listeriosis in 15 outbreaks, reported the Robert Koch Institute (RKI).

A total of 24 outbreaks of listeriosis across federal states with links to smoked or graved salmon products as the cause have been found since 2010.
