Salmonella in French cheeses prompts recall in Netherlands

It’s been a bad week for French cheeses.

imagesHong Kong’s Centre for Food Safety (CFS) expanded on its earlier recall for Listeria in raw-milk cheeses from France, and now the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority has recalled French cheese of the brand Le Petit Fiance des Pyrenees because of Salmonella.

The NVWA urgently warns people who have bought this brand of cheese with the expiration date 02-06-2015 to not consume the cheese and report it to the store where it was purchased. If you have already eaten the cheese and are feeling sick, contact your doctor as soon as possible.
