The Belgian Food Chain Safety Agency (AFSCA) has reported that the presence of Trichinella spiralis in wild boar meat is being studied.
With the available database, the traceability study initially led to a Spanish wholesaler that supplied several Belgian restaurants. The wholesaler has removed the wild boar meat from the market and has informed all the restaurants supplied by them.
Spain has been informed through the rapid alert system (RASFF). For its part, Spain has informed Belgium about the delivery of wild boar meat from the same business to other other 5 Belgian institutions.
