Liechtenstein-based food processor Ospelt Foods is launching an investigation into a listeria outbreak that sparked a massive list of product recalls from two of the country’s supermarket chains.

Ospelt detected listeria monocytogenes through inspection leading the company to contact its retail customers and agree the wording of a statement.

“We are investigating and then we will communicate again,” an Ospelt spokesperson told IntraFish.

Consumers are being advised not to consume the products and return them to the outlet where they were purchased.

Listeria monocytogenes may be particularly harmful to pregnant women, very young, the very old, and people with weakened immune systems.
