Two types of smoked salmon sold at Carrefour France, under the brand Carrefour Selection, have been recalled because of contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, reports consumer platform Response Conso.
The recall followed the detection of the Listeria bacterium in products from the Mer Alliance company.
All packages were withdrawn from the supermarkets, but some of the salmon had already been sold before the recall. Carrefour is calling on its customers not to consume the two types of sliced salmon involved, smoked salmon with dill and lemon zest, but destroy them or bring them back to the shop for refund.
Carrefour advises people who have consumed the affected products and are experiencing fever or headache, to contact their physicians immediately. The incubation time of Listeria monocytogenes may be up to eight weeks.
