The Balearic health authorities repeated their warnings to people who had purchased chickens before their removal from shops was ordered not to consume them, as they may be contaminated. However, the central ministry believes that most of the units have already been withdrawn from sale. The outbreak started on Friday and affects the whole country with the exception of the Canary Islands.
The company produces more than 10'000 units a day and has a nation-wide distribution chain.
The first cases were detected in Valencia, and a national alert was raised. Steps taken were closing down production, blocking all products which had already been distributed and informing the population. Isabel Avila, president of the Spanish Federation of Housewives and Consumers Organisations, said yesterday that it will be years before consumers recover confidence in the pre-cooked chicken business. It was an unfortunate accident, and we know that zero risk does not exist, she said, calling for tighter controls.
The Sada factory was inspected twice a week.
