The black streak continues for the food industry: product recalls continue to multiply in France. The last one concerns various bagged salads. It is advisable not to consume them. Here’s everything you need to know.
After minced meat, nuggets or even sausages, it’s the turn of an essential summer ingredient to be the subject of a product recall: salad. Practical to save time in the kitchen, salad bags easily find their place in our refrigerators. But beware, if you recently bought one. Some products sold in supermarkets are recalled throughout France. The latter must not be consumed, as they exceed the authorized limits of pesticides or are likely to contain unauthorized phytosanitary products.
