Mass recall at Leclerc: don’t eat these dangerous foods, they’re aperitif cheeses

Reminder: As a precautionary measure, the brand is recalling 65g bags of Les Croisés containing two scoops of goat cheese. We provide you with all the details.

Potentially contaminated cheese

On May 12, 2022, Leclerc stores launched a nationwide recall campaign. This was done in consultation with the Rappel Conso government website. We are talking about aperitif cheeses, which may contain a bacterium called Listeria monocytogenes. The latter can cause listeriosis, a deadly disease that affects the nervous system.

The recalled products are 65g sachets of two goat cheeses labeled Les Croisés. These tomato, paprika and poppy flavored balls are often eaten as a snack. The corresponding batches were sold throughout France. The dates for their use are from May 18 to June 7, 2022. They have the following numbers:

  • 3 564 706 581 173
  • 3 564 706 581 173
  • 3 564 706 581 173
  • 3 564 706 581 173

According to Rappel Conso, if you or someone you know is suffering from fever, headaches, or body aches after consuming these products, you should contact your doctor without delay. And this is by notifying him of the consumption of these products. Reminder Conso indicates that immunocompromised people, pregnant women, or the elderly are most vulnerable to Listeria infections.

Leclerc remembers mortadella

In addition to these goat cheeses, Leclerc also recalled mortadella, which may have contained Listeria. These are parties from the brand “L’Atelier Charcuterie Tradizioni D’Italia”. For once, this recall campaign was also featured on the Rappel Conso website.

These mortadella are sold in slices in transparent trays of 100g each. The respective batches are numbered L213097. On the boxes you can also see the barcode 3664335100049. The expiration date of these mortadellas is between April 19 and May 10, 2022. These products were sold on the shelves of all Leclerc stores.

If you have purchased these products, avoid them at all costs. Destroy them or return them to the store for a refund.

According to Rappel Konso, people who have consumed these products “when a fever develops, isolated or accompanied by headaches and body aches, it is suggested that you consult your doctor, informing him of this consumption.”

The site adds that eating foods containing listeria can lead to neurological complications. The consequences of eating foods containing these bacteria can be detrimental to pregnant women.

The bacterium Listeria monocytogenes causes a disease called listeriosis. Its incubation can last up to eight weeks. The Konso reminder calls for the vigilance of the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, as well as pregnant women.

If you have bought the batches in question, avoid consuming them. Try returning them to the store for a refund.

Remembered the herring fillet

Back in Leclerc, another campaign involves sacks of herring. The reason for this campaign is nothing less than the proven presence of listeriosis.

We are talking about sweet herring fillets from the north, produced under the trademark “Our Regions Have Talents”. They are presented in 200g plastic packs. These small fillets were sold in Leclerc stores from May 4 to May 12, 2022.

“Microbiological control revealed (…) the presence of Listeria monocytogenes,” points out Rapel Konso.

The corresponding herring fillet has the number 3564709042763 followed by the batch number: 119. Their expiration date has been set to June 3, 2022.

If you have purchased the batches in question, avoid consuming them. Return them to the store or contact support at 0.800.87.41.87. Please note that this revocation procedure ends on July 12, 2022.

Once again, Rappel Conso calls for the vigilance of pregnant women, immunocompromised people and the elderly. If you have a fever or “fever isolated or accompanied by headaches and body aches”, you should immediately contact your doctor, informing him that you have eaten these foods.
