Spain: Detection of Trichinella pseudospiralis in wild boar meat

This is the first time this species of Trichinella is detected in Spain.

Wednesday 14 January 2015 (3 years 4 months 10 days ago)

According to information published by the Official College of Veterinary Surgeons of Lleida, last October 31 the National Food Centre reported the detection of Trichinella pseudospiralis in a sample of wild boar from Catalonia. This is the first time this species of Trichinella is detected in Spain, and its main characteristic is that it does not form a capsule in the host and, therefore, cannot be detected by the trichinoscopic method.

To ensure the safe consumption of meat from animals susceptible to Trichinella, AECOSAN recommends to avoid using this method and to replace it by one of the digestion methods listed in Chapters I and II of Regulation 2075/2005.
