Carrefour product information alert: a new food scandal!

Carrefour food scandal: Here are all the details about this much talked about product on social networks.

After pizza, cheese, chocolate, and sugar, here’s a food product that is affected by the recall. Can we talk about a health scandal? In any case, there is reason to be concerned about consumers. We tell you everything.

Food scandals follow each other

Food scandals have followed each other in recent weeks in all supermarkets. In fact, in March 2022, Buitoni brand Buitoni’s frozen pizza was recalled as a precaution. The reason is that the French health authorities consider them to be the cause of several serious cases of E. coli contamination of children in France.

On April 6, 2022, at least 24,000 cheeses were withdrawn from Fromageries de Normandie (Lactalis group). It’s about raspberries, coulomieres, caimberts and mini camperts from the Normanville, Bonn Norman, Bakirette, Greindorge and Normandy brands. Health authorities have identified a “potential source of contamination” for the bacteria responsible for listeriosis.

At the same time, the Ferrero Group also pulled chocolate from its factory in Arlon, Belgium. These were Kinder products from the Kinder Surprise, Kinder Schoko-bons, Kinder Mini-Eggs, Kinder Mix, Kinder Happy Moments and Kinder Surprise 100g lines. Retrieved by the discovery of a link between the plant and the poisoning of European children with salmonella.

Recall a food product

Also in April, Intermarché recalled sugar sold by Top Budget after revealing broken glass in said products. Today, it is the collar that Carrefour sells that makes the news. In fact, these products may contain foreign bodies whose ingestion can have serious health consequences.

These successive withdrawals are causing concern among consumers. Since March 2021, there have been 4,377 incompatible or dangerous food references.

Who would have thought that in 2022, children will get sick from supermarket-bought chocolate, pizza or sausage. Since the baby dairy products scandal of giant Lactalis that occurred in 2017, censorship of food products has intensified. In addition, the principle of caution was applied more stringently.

Carrefour stores recall products

On April 27, 2022, the Carrefour brand launched an alert regarding blue cords being sold out in its stores. The refund indicates that this is chicken cordon bleu sold in pairs in a 200g box. It is numbered 29022095B and its expiration date is 04/30/2022. These products may contain plastic that may cause “adverse effects after ingestion”.

This recall comes after another recall that includes sausage. This is the real Jesus Leon sausage from the brand Reflets de France (bag 600g). Sold between March 14 and April 21, 2022 in brand stores.

The references are as follows:

Lot 205080
Global Item Number (GTIN) 3560071431839
Expiry Date: April 29, 2022

If you have anything left in the lockers, please do not use it. Return it to the store for a refund.

negotiable control

What will happen now in Carrefour?

The controversy over food product control is coming back to the fore due to numerous health scandals. Some associations believe that the system of self-monitoring entrusted to the industrialists is no longer sufficient.

Since the Lactalis and Ferrero scandal etc. Who are the leaders in their markets, confidence in these large multinational companies has collapsed. Many are calling for reform, such as Karen Jacquemart, director general of the Consumer Advocacy Association.

Crossroads

For the latter, the succession of these health scandals is evidence of the failure of the monitoring system itself. As for Quentin Guillemin, president of the Children’s Health Association, he points out the lack of oversight by the health authorities.

“No lesson learned! The real controls that health authorities exercise over these factories no longer exist,” laments Quentin Gilliman.
