Three people die and over 200 infected in Spain listeria outbreak
Products linked to the outbreak have been recalled, but because of their popularity and three-month self life, more cases are expected soon
London — Three people have died and at least 222 have been infected in Spain’s largest-ever outbreak of listeria, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Monday.
The outbreak, linked to a packaged pork producer in the south of the country, is mainly affecting women and people over 65, the WHO said. Most cases are in Andalusia, where the pork plant linked to the outbreak — owned by Seville-based Magrudis — is located.
