The 60 million consumers site is sounding the alarm. The Auchan and Lidl retail chains recalled brands of minced meat and steaks, mostly packaged in trays, and sold in their supermarkets. They could, reports the consumer site, "contain metallic filaments". The deadline for these products, sold under private labels, around June 17 is until June 26.
Customers who could have bought these brands are asked not to consume them of course and to return them to the supermarket where they were purchased. The list of references concerned can be found here and here and the names of the supermarkets concerned are available here.
Deli meats removed on Friday
On Friday, ten types of Italian cold cuts, manufactured by the company Fumagalli and marketed under the Carrefour bio and Carrefour Sélection brands, were already subject to a recall procedure. The distribution group announced that it had discovered listeria in batches of mortadella. This discovery leads to the withdrawal of all of the lots of products listed by Carrefour in its press release, regardless of their expiration date.
Carrefour recommends that people who hold these products "not to consume them and destroy them or bring them back to the store, where they will be reimbursed". He invited those who would have consumed these cold meats and "would present a fever, isolated or accompanied by headaches, [...] to consult their doctor by notifying him of this consumption".
