θάνατοι από listeria...

7 άνθρωποι [5 Αυστριακοί και 2 Γερμανοί] έχουν πεθάνει τις τελευταίες μέρες από επιμολυσμένο με listeria τυρί σε Αυστρία και Γερμανία.

όσα ξέρουμε για το τυρί - δηλητήριο ...είναι τούτα

Approximately 16 tons of Quargel per week are produced by the Austrian manufacturer. Fifty-three per cent of the product is exported to the German market and small amounts to the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia. This cheese is made of curdled milk, which ripens after addition of starter cultures for one day at 28°C, and after being sprayed with Brevibacterium linens for another two days at 14°C. The shelf life after packing and marketing is two months.

An environmental L. monocytogenes 1/2a isolate from the production plant, collected in December 2009, became available in January 2010 and proved indistinguishable from the outbreak strain by genotyping. Quargel cheese products sampled at the plant on January 13 yielded three different strains of L. monocytogenes 1/2a, including the outbreak clone, in numbers of less than 100 colony-forming units (cfu) per gram. Food products collected on 18 January 2010 yielded greater than 100 cfu/g L. monocytogenes. The product was voluntarily withdrawn from the market on 23 January. On the same day, the public was informed about the incident and warned about cheese already bought. The plant stopped production. Investigation of the source of contamination is ongoing.

και στις 24.1.2010 το Lidl απέσυρε 2 τυριά από τα ράφια του...

The popular food discounter said higher-than-allowed concentrations of the Listeria monocytogenes bacterium had been found in individual samples of two cheeses – "Reinhardshof, Harzer Käse, 200g" and "Reinhardshof, Bauernkäse mit Edelschimmel, 200g." The company has pulled the cheeses off its shelves and is offering customers who purchased the products their money back.
