​Food Poisoning in Lanzarote Linked to Cheese

Food Poisoning in Lanzarote Linked to Cheese

This week the Canary Islands Health Service reported that it was investigating the circumstances in which 11 people suffered mild food poisoning in Lanzarote, which is thought initially to be associated with the consumption of a bacteria present in cheese.

The 11 patients affected were treated in the Accident and Emergency Department of Doctor Jose Molia Orosa Hospital for mild gastroenteritis caused by a staphylococcus, but were not detained at the hospital.

The inspectors of the Health Area of Lanzarote have already located the establishment in which it is presumed that the affected product was sold, and samples are currently being analysed, reported by the Canary Islands Government.

It is also reported that when these analyses are available, the Health Authority will notify local people of the batch of the product involved in this mild food poisoning incident.
