Salmonella Goldcoast

The Dutch Food Authority (NVWA) has received reports from people that have fallen ill as a result of eating meat (preparations) contaminated with the bacteria Salmonella Goldcoast.

The Authority strongly believes that the fresh meat originated from a Dutch slaughterhouse. However, the existence of salmonella on fresh meat is not prohibited. In light of food safety, the NVWA has initiated an in-depth investigation. Furthermore, the Authority has issued a so-called RASFF-alert, informing the European Commission and other international food authorities.
