Product recall: this must-have food from Leclerc may be contaminated with listeria, it should not be eaten

The difficulty of shopping

While the daily life of the French is constantly upset for many reasons. Shortages of basic foodstuffs due to drought in Canada and the United States last year. Or because of the current global situation, it becomes difficult to shop. To these shortages of products must also be added the inflation suffered by France. INSEE announces that in May 2022 inflation rose to more than 5%. And if with the tightening budget they still manage to buy products, many products are recalled, today it is the turn of an E.Leclerc product.

Between inflation, shortages and risk of contamination or product hygiene problems, it becomes very complicated to maintain one’s habits in a constantly changing society like ours. Indeed many products are recalled. Frozen pizzas, kinder, cans, Italian sauces or even minced meat and many other products. Although the causes are different, the problem remains the same, these products endanger the health of those who consume them, like this product sold by E.Leclerc.
