Disney is informing Guests that listeria has been found in food served inside one of its theme parks.
What would you do if you were on vacation and suddenly became ill? Maybe think you had food poisoning? Well, in this story it was actually listeria.
Listeria is a bacteria that can cause Listeriosis. Mild, flu-like symptoms occur which includes fever, chills, muscle aches, and an upset stomach. Onset of symptoms usually begins about 24 hours after consumption but can show up 2 months later!
Disneyland Paris is informing Guests that listeria has been found in smoked salmon. We commend them for notifying those who may have been infected and for conducting these tests. However, a few members of our KtP team have been to Disneyland Paris and comment that they are not exactly surprised. The food quality at Disneyland Paris is known to be of lesser quality than other Disney Parks.
Statement from Disneyland Paris
Disneyland Paris sent out a notifcation to Guests. It is translated below:
We wanted to inform you that as part of our food quality monitoring plans, testing has revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in smoked salmon from one of our suppliers.
We immediately withdrew this product from the restaurants of the Hotels and Parks where it was available and informed the relevant authorities and our supplier.
If you consumed smoked salmon at Disneyland Paris between 2 June 2022 and 17 June 2022 and you develop a fever, either on its own or with a headache, we invite you to consult your doctor and report your consumption.
Pregnant women should be particularly aware of these symptoms, as well as immunocompromised people and the elderly. These symptoms may suggest Listeriosis, a potentially serious disease with an incubation period of up to eight weeks.
To date, we have not been informed of any cases of people showing symptoms related to the consumption of this product. For further information, please contact the Customer Relations Centre (Monday to Friday from 9:30 am to 7:30 pm or Saturday from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm) or write us at [email protected]
