SA Health Has Just Issued A Listeria Warning

Oct 11, 2018


SA Health is advising people not to eat pre-packaged sliced silverside purchased from Drakes Supermarkets after Listeria was found in the product.

According to the department’s Dr Chris Lease:

“Following detection of Listeria during routine testing, Drakes Supermarkets are working to remove any potentially affected product from supply today.

“While we have not received notification of anyone contracting Listeria from the product, the infection can be extremely serious if it is contracted by the elderly, pregnant women or people with weakened immune systems.

“Many people are exposed to Listeria often with only mild illness resulting, but it can be more serious in the at-risk groups, so all South Australians at-risk should avoid eating the product.

“As a precaution, we recommend anyone who has purchased sliced silverside from Drakes Supermarkets to not eat it and either return it to the place of purchase, or discard it.”
