The Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (Aesan) has published a new food alert for the presence of allergens in a meat product. Specifically, as detailed by the Aesan, it is about a frozen pork preparation from the EMB Food brand containing sesame seeds without having been declared on the labeling, as required by law. The batch number is 13112021 (it coincides with the best before date) and the weight is 250 grams. A couple of weeks ago the agency also warned of the presence of listeria in different sausages.
As is usual with this type of alert, Aesan learned of the incident thanks to a notification from the health authorities of the Community of Madrid through the Coordinated System for Rapid Information Exchange (Sciri).
In principle, the product in question has been distributed by the autonomous communities of Andalusia, Aragon, the Canary Islands, Galicia, the Valencian Community, France and the Netherlands. This information, according to the Aesan, has been transferred to the health authorities of the rest of the autonomous communities 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 from the marketing channels ”.
