Anchovies and sardines are considered the principal species for commercial fishing in Europe and are widely consumed as semi-preserved products. Although they are considered shelf-stable products, if treatment is not correctly applied, their consumption may represent a public health risk. This study aimed to evaluate the presence of Anisakis spp. larvae in deboned, in-oil anchovy and sardine fillets marketed in the EU. Ninety samples deriving from the Mediterranean Sea or Atlantic Ocean were collected from different EU retailers and examined. Thirty nonviable anisakid larvae were found. The low frequency of parasites found proved that processing technologies can influence the presence of larvae in final products, but it is important that visual inspection is performed only by trained people. The origin of raw materials should be considered in the production flow chart. View this paper.
