Listeria contaminated milk may have infected 1300 Bulgarian children

The  Sophia news agency is reporting that some 1300 children from Bulgaria’s southern municipalities of Dupnitza, Rila, and Kocherinovo will be examined for the dangerous Listeriosis infection after consuming contaminated milk in their kindergardens.

Authorities said the milk contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria was produced by Euromeat and Milk EOOD, which were sanctioned in the end of January over not meeting hygienic requirements.
