Zoonoses are infections and diseases that are naturally transmissible directly or indirectly, for example via contaminated foodstuffs, between animals and humans. In 2008, 27 Member States submitted information on the occurrence of zoonoses, zoonotic agents and food-borne outbreaks to the European Commission and the European Food Safety Authority. In 2008, salmonellosis was again the second most often reported zoonotic disease in humans accounting for 131,468 confirmed human cases. An important decline in the prevalence of S.

EFSA 04/06/09 Proposed technical specifications for a survey on Listeria monocytogenes in selected categories of ready-to-eat fo Type: Scientific Report of EFSA Question number: EFSA-Q-2008-415 Approved: 22 May 2009 Published: 04 June 2009 The European Food Safety Authority and its Task Force on Zoonoses Data Collection were requested by the European Commission to produce a proposal for technical specifications on a co-ordinated monitoring programme (a survey scheme) for Listeria monocytogenes in ready-to-eat (RTE) food. This survey should allow the comparison of L. monocytogenes contamination in RTE food in the Community and Member States and the verification of the Community food safety criteria for L. monocytogenes.

IRB BARCELONA 07/10/09 IRB Barcelona to participate in a European project against tuberculosis IRB Barcelona to participate in a European project against tuberculosis Tuberculosis is one of the major health threats worldwide. Every year more than 2 million people die from this infectious disease, which is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The lack of effectiveness of drug treatments because of the appearance of strains that show multi-resistance to new drugs has made tuberculosis a focus of international research to define new therapeutic tools against this disease.

EFSA 14/12/06 Campylobacteriosis overtakes salmonellosis as the most reported animal infection transmitted to humans in the EU Press Release 14 December 2006 The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has today published its second annual Community report on infectious diseases transmissible from animals to humans (zoonotic diseases) which affect over 380,000 European Union (EU) citizens every year. In 2005, campylobacteriosis overtook salmonellosis as the most reported zoonotic disease in humans in the EU. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) provided the data on human zoonoses cases and contributed in the analysis of human related data in the report.

Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin. 2012;30:243-5. A Campylobacter outbreak in a Barcelona school Introduction Campylobacteriosis is the most frequently reported zoonotic disease in humans in the European Union (EU), with 200,507 reported confirmed cases, and an incidence of 45.2/100,000 in 2007.1 However, Campylobacter outbreaks are rare. Human infection is commonly associated with symptoms including watery and bloody diarrhoea, abdominal pain, fever, headache and nausea, and the infection is usually self-limiting in a few days.2 On 27 September 2010, the director of a Barcelona primary school alerted the Public Health Agency of Barcelona (PHAB) of an unusual rate of 68 absences among 435 scholars, and initial enquiries revealed that children had a diarrhoeal illness.

EFSA 17/12/15 Campylobacter and Listeria infections still rising in the EU – say EFSA and ECDC Listeriosis infections reported in humans increased by 16% compared with 2013: there were 2,161 confirmed cases in 2014. Although this number is relatively low, the rise of reported listeriosis cases is of concern as the surveillance of these infections is focused on severe forms of the disease, with higher death rates than for other food-borne diseases, particularly among the elderly, and patients with a weak immune system. However, Listeria monocytogenes, the bacterium that causes listeriosis in humans and animals, seldom exceeded the legal safety limits in ready-to-eat foods – the most common foodborne source of human infections. Campylobacteriosis remains the most commonly reported foodborne disease in the EU and has been so since 2005. The number of confirmed cases in the EU in 2014 was 236,851, an increase of 22,067 cases (10%), compared with 2013. “All main actors in the food chain need to act together to improve monitoring at EU level.

EFSA 12/08/14 Analysis of the baseline survey on the prevalence of Listeria monocytogenes in certain ready-to-eat foods in the EU, 2010-2011 Part B: analysis of factors related to prevalence and exploring compliance A European Union-wide baseline survey on Listeria monocytogenes was carried out in 2010 and 2011 with the aim of estimating the European Union-level prevalence of Listeria monocytogenes in certain ready-to-eat (RTE) foods at retail. A total of 3 053 batches of packaged (not frozen) hot or cold smoked or gravad fish, 3 530 packaged heat-treated meat products and 3 452 soft or semi-soft cheeses were sampled from 3 632 retail outlets in 26 European Union Member States (MS) and one country not belonging to the European Union. Two fish product samples from the same batch were analysed upon arrival at the laboratory as well as at the end of shelf-life, whereas the meat products and the cheese samples were analysed at the end of shelf-life. All 13 088 food samples were examined for the presence of L. monocytogenes, in addition to the determination of the L. monocytogenes counts. A statistical model was developed for this purpose and is presented in the current report.
