Carrefour, Leclerc, Cora, 24,000 cheeses recalled for listeria risk

The Lactalis group extended its raw milk cheese recall campaign on Friday April 8. Fromageries de Normandie, acquired by Lactalis in 2016, recalls all raw milk cheeses made with the milk of the producer concerned, i.e. 24,000 cheeses.

The Fromageries de Normandie, of the Lactalis group, extended their raw milk cheese recall campaign on Friday April 8, after having identified a probable source of contamination of the bacterium responsible for listeriosis, according to a press release.

Lactalis, which had started the recall of its Graindorge cheeses on Monday April 4, traced the source of the problem by identifying the origin of the contamination, caused by raw milk from one of its partner farms, specifies the group.

As a result, Fromageries de Normandie, acquired by Lactalis in 2016, is recalling all raw milk cheeses made with milk from the producer concerned, i.e. 24,000 cheeses, a Lactalis spokesperson told AFP.

Bries, coulommiers, camemberts and small camemberts of the Normanville, Bon Normand, Pâquerettes, Graindorge, Traditions de Normandie and Nous anti-gaspi brands are thus targeted, without any poisoning being observed to date, specified the group.

The identification numbers of the recalled batches are 010322LI8, 030322LI8, 070322LI8, 090322LI9, 110322LI4, 150322LI3, 170322LI1, and stamped FR 14.371.001 CE, according to Fromageries de Normandie. The group has also set up a freephone number for the consumers concerned (0800 120 120).

Listeriosis can be deadly

Listeriosis, caused by the bacterium Listeria Monocytogenes, is the second cause of death by food poisoning, with several dozen deaths per year in France.

In its so-called invasive form, listeriosis is particularly deadly: about a quarter of patients die, for example due to neurological complications such as meningitis.


The incubation period is usually one or two weeks, but can last up to almost three months, and pregnant women are particularly at risk, with a 20 times higher risk of developing the infection than the rest of the population. population.

The campaign comes following a massive recall of Buitoni brand frozen pizzas after several serious cases of Escherichia coli contamination in children, as well as Kinder products suspected of causing cases of salmonellosis.
