CNN Reported that Spain's health ministry had issued an international health warning for an outbreak of listeriosis in Seville province tied to pork meatloaf that has infected 175 people (161 in Andalucia), with another 500 cases pending confirmation. Fifty people remained in hospital by Wednesday, 23 of whom were pregnant women, according to Reuters. A 90-year-old woman has died from the Listeria infection. The outbreak is linked to pork meatloaf, known as Carne mechada, produced by Magrudis S.L. in the southern Spanish province. Spain has informed the World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Commission about the outbreak. There have been no reports of international distribution of implicated products. This should limit the possibility of cases in other countries. At the beginning of August a Listeria outbreak in the UK had killed six people who had eaten contaminated hospital food. @ https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/22/health/spain-listeria-alert-scli-intl/index.html
