Six patients were infected with Trichinella britovi in southern France following consumption of frozen wild boar meat, which had been frozen at -35°C for 7 days. Microscopic examination of a sample of frozen wild boar muscle revealed the presence of rare encapsulated Trichinella larvae, identified as T. britovi. People eating wild boar must follow individual prophylactic rules such as efficient cooking of meat (at least 65°C at the core for 1 minute) as recommended by the International Commission on Trichinellosis, or freezing exceeding four weeks at -20°C.
