SA Health Issues Listeria Warning Regarding Contaminated Silverside

SA Health has issued a warning to pregnant women in the state after listeria has been detected in silverside.

The warning comes after the infection was detected in pre-packaged slices of silverside from Drakes Supermarkets.

"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," SA's Acting Executive Director of Public Health Services Dr Chris Lease said.

"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."

The affected silverside has the use-by date of October 15, 2018 and November 5, 2018.

If you believe that you are presenting symptoms of listeria (similar to flu-like symptoms), it is advised that you visit your GP.
