Product Recall: Cheese!
Some supermarkets have issued a product recall on cheese, which is a very serious business. Don't be messing around with people's cheese. This involves some Camembert, which might have the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause you to be sick, and is especially horrible if you're pregnant, young children,, people over 60 years old, and those with weakened immune systems.
So which cheese? Well, the Co-operative is taking their Truly Irresistible Camembert off the shelves as a precautionary measure, as well as Asda with their Extra Special Camembert de Pays.
The Co-op's Truly Irresistible Camembert 250g batch has a use by date of 21 February 2016. A spokesperson for the retailer said: "Product safety is our absolute priority and as a precaution we have recalled the product following routine testing. Notices have been placed in all stockist stores and we have alerted the FSA."
"We would advise customers not to consume this product and return it to store for a full refund."
As for Asda and their 250g Extra Special Camembert de Pays, that has use by dates of 14, 21 and 28 February 2016, and they've started taking them off the shelves. Again, take your cheese back to the shop, and they'll sort out the rest for you. Or, if you're feeling frivolous, just bin it.
Last week, Sainsbury’s issued a recall for a batch of Camembert products, thanks to the same problem.
