Massive recall at Leclerc: do not consume these products dangerous to health, they are aperitif cheeses

Rappel massif

Reminder: As a precaution, the brand is recalling the 65 g sachets produced by Les Croisés, containing two goat cheese balls. We give you all the details.

Potentially contaminated cheese

On May 12, 2022, Leclerc stores launched a nationwide recall campaign. This was done in coordination with the government site Rappel Conso. The products in question are aperitif cheeses which may contain a bacterium called Listeria monocytogenes. The latter could cause listeriosis, a fatal disease that attacks the nervous system.

The recalled products are sachets containing two 65 g goat’s cheeses stamped Les Croisés. These tomato-paprika and poppy-tapenade flavored balls are often eaten as appetizers. The batches concerned were marketed throughout France. Their use-by dates are between May 18 and June 7, 2022. They bear 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 suffers from fever, headaches or body aches after eating these products in question, you should see a doctor without delay. And this, by notifying him of the consumption of these products. Reminder Conso specifies that immunocompromised people, pregnant women or the elderly are the most vulnerable to infections caused by listeria.

Leclerc recalls mortadella

In addition to these goat cheeses, Leclerc also recalled mortadella which could contain listeria. These are batches from the “L’Atelier Charcuterie Tradizioni D’Italia” brand. For once, this recall campaign was also relayed by the Rappel Conso site.

These mortadellas are sold in slices presented in transparent trays of 100 g each. The batches concerned carry the reference L213097. You can also see the barcode 3664335100049 on the boxes. The use-by date for 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 eating them at all costs. Destroy them or bring them back to the store for a refund.

According to Rappel Conso, people who have consumed these products “would present fever, isolated or accompanied by headaches, and body aches, are invited to consult their doctor by informing him of this consumption”.

The site added that consuming products containing listeria can lead to neurological complications. The consequences of consuming products containing this bacteria can be disastrous for pregnant women.

The bacterium Listeria monocytogenes causes a disease called listeriosis. Its incubation can last up to eight weeks. Reminder Conso calls for the vigilance of the elderly, immunocompromised people as well as pregnant women.

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

Recalled herring fillets

Still at Leclerc, another campaign affects bags of herring. The cause of this campaign is none other than the proven presence of listeria.

The products concerned are sweet herring fillets from the North, produced by the “Our regions have talent” brand. They are presented in plastic packaging of 200 g. These small fillets were sold on the Leclerc shelves between May 4 and May 12, 2022.

“A microbiological control revealed (…) the presence of Listeria monocytogenes”, indicates Rapel Conso.

The herring fillets concerned bear the number 3564709042763, followed by the batch number: 119. Their use-by date was set at June 3, 2022.

If you have purchased the batches in question, avoid consuming them. Bring them back to the store or contact consumer service at 0.800.87.41.87. Note that this recall procedure ends on July 12, 2022.

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