Product recall at Carrefour, Leclerc, Cora, etc.: Decidedly, the same type of information continues to circulate for the moment. After numerous product recalls concerning ice cream, ham or even more recently cheese, it is a new case that LDPeople evokes for you today. Indeed, the health authorities are sounding the alarm about several references. Foodstuffs available at Leclerc, Cora, Carrefour or other major players in mass distribution.
Product recall: be careful, if you have done your shopping at Leclerc, Cora, Carrefour …
In France, the General Directorate for Competition, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control carries out thousands of checks each year. Attached to the Ministry of the Economy, the DGCCRF functions as an attentive observer of the market, in order to guarantee both compliance with trade laws and food safety. Regularly, its agents therefore discover problems in many spheres of activity. Among these, food distribution is no exception. This is why the competent services initiate a multitude of product recalls extremely frequently.
Almost every day the DGCCRF acts in concert with other State services, but also with the major players in the sector to warn store customers that there are irregularities. A few days ago, this is the reason why a vast recall campaign appeared concerning sesame which contained a much too high rate of ethylene oxide. Without further ado, chain stores such as Leclerc, Carrefour or Cora immediately removed the offending preparations from the shelves. In this case, it was raw sesame, but also mash, hamburger buns and a long list of references. A welcome precaution which aims to anticipate any possible health problem.
But, if today our editorial staff devotes a new article to the product recall, this is a different issue. In this case, the site drink.govt effectively shares information that Asian soups do not comply with current legislation. They were available in hypermarkets such as Cora, Carrefour or Leclerc. But then, a question arises: why this rapid decision to stop the sale of these preparations.
In fact, the soups in question greatly exceed the acceptable limits for pesticides. They would thus “A concentration of chloroéthanol higher than the regulations in any of the ingredients ”. So that’s why LDPeople lists the references related to this massive product recall. These include the brand’s pho soup Acecook, instant stir-fried rice noodles Oh Ricey, the instant noodle soup from the brand De Nath or Mi Lau instant noodle soup. An inventory to which we must also add instant rice noodles Oh Ricey, garlic and onion flavored rice noodles from Acecook, and to finish the instant noodle soup Haohao. In all cases, it is therefore recommended not to consume them and to bring them back to the store as part of this product recall.
The repayment terms
Carrefour: When large retailers initiate a product recall, the rules are always the same. You just need to come to the store with your purchase to be immediately refunded. According to the legislation and customs in the matter, the cashier may in no case require any proof of purchase or a receipt. But, regardless of these pecuniary considerations, it is important to remember that the consumption of these foods must absolutely be avoided. So do not hesitate to get rid of it and especially not to take the slightest risk. Even if generally, these are preventive measures, it is always better to inform that cure. There is indeed no question of playing with our health.
However, it must be recognized that those responsible for mass distribution do everything to work in the most total transparency. Once they have the information that one of their references is problematic, everyone bends over backwards to react as quickly as possible. It should also be noted that in many situations the stores are not the producers. But they are only the distributors of its foodstuffs affected by product recalls. However, it is their responsibility to keep us informed. An action that is generally quickly implemented and relayed by the media. It is also perfectly in this line that LDPeople in fact the same.
