After Buitoni pizzas and Kinder chocolates, 6 cheeses distributed by supermarkets are the subject of a recall campaign for the risk of listeriosis in cheeses.
This time, it is six cheeses, all marketed by supermarkets suspected of containing the bacterium responsible for listeriosis.
RISK OF LISTERIOSIS: SIX RAW MILK CHEESES RECALLED
Although this foodborne infection is rare (only a few hundred cases are reported each year in France), it is particularly serious.
Indeed, about a quarter of patients with listeriosis die from it. The incubation period can be up to eight weeks.

To deal with the risk, the government site recommends returning the products for reimbursement or destroying them. But above all, not to consume them.
People who have eaten these cheeses and who show symptoms such as fever, headache or body aches are advised to consult their doctor. Pregnant women and immunocompromised people are particularly advised to consult their doctor.

THE REASON FOR THE RECALL IS AN OUTBREAK OF SALMONELLA.
The reason for the recall? A potential link with reported cases of salmonellosis, as indicated by the health agency Public Health France in a press release.
It specifies that these recalls follow an epidemic of salmonellosis in several European countries. Recalls were also carried out in Belgium and the United Kingdom. In France, 31 cases of salmonellosis have already been detected. Eight of them had to be hospitalized.
None of our Kinder products on the French market have tested positive for salmonella, we have not received any complaints from consumers, says Ferrero France.
In case of possession, Ferrero France always advises not to consume the products listed and to contact its consumer assistance team (on 08 00 65 36 53 or on [email protected]).
Consumers are invited to take a photo of the packaging with the product references before throwing them away immediately. They are also advised to consult their doctor without delay in the event of symptoms (gastrointestinal disorders, fever, etc.).
