The Carrefour group recalls its private label raclette cheese

The supermarket group has launched a recall procedure for a Carrefour Original brand raclette cheese due to a risk of listeria contamination.

Be careful if you have recently bought raclette cheese from a Carrefour store. The hypermarket group has issued a recall procedure for its “Classic Raclette” cheese from its distributor brand “Carrefour Original”. Sold for a month to the day in the form of a 400 gram tray, the product was removed from the shelves on Tuesday.

In question therefore a suspicion of bacteriological contamination and in this case listeria monocytogenes which is the agent responsible for listeriosis. Are concerned “batch numbers starting with 1152223102 (the DDM concerns products marketed in metropolitan France)” and “batch numbers starting with 1152223102 (the DDM concerns products marketed in the DOM-TOMs)”, specifies Rappel Conso.

The site has already given the following four instructions: no longer consume the product, return it to the point of sale in order to be reimbursed if it has already been purchased, contact consumer service or even simply destroy the product. .

Up to two months of incubation

The government site also provides some health recommendations. In particular, he invites people who have already consumed the product and “who have fever, isolated or accompanied by headaches, and body aches, to consult their doctor, notifying him of this consumption”.

“Severe forms with neurological complications and maternal or fetal damage in pregnant women can also sometimes occur, adds the government platform. Pregnant women as well as immunocompromised people and the elderly should be particularly attentive to these symptoms. Listeriosis is a disease that can be serious and whose incubation period can be up to eight weeks.
