Listeria Outbreak caused by tainted meat in South Spain (Aug 2019)

After infecting more than 200 people, the crisis seems to be under control but it is a dramatic warning about the importance of implementing strict measures on food safety in the meat industry.

Esbelt antimicrobial (AM) belts  contribute to the reduction of contamination risk and excess microbial charge.

A test carried out according to ISO 22196 with Listeria monocytogenes CCUG 15526 indicates that the growth of this bacteria on an esbelt  AM belt is

99.97% less than a belt which is not AM.
