Carrefour issues urgent consumer alert regarding smoked salmon and trout products
European supermarket chain Carrefour is recalling packs of smoked trout and salmon produced by a seafood smoker based out of Saujon, France.
According to a consumer alert recently issued by the retailer on 22 July, the 250-gram packs of smoked trout and the 150-gram packs of smoked salmon with l’Île-de-Ré sea salt could contain Listeria monocytogenes. Les Fumoirs de Saintonge, a seafood smoking company located in southwestern France, notified Carrefour of the recall after an inspection uncovered evidence of listeria in some of its products.
An initial recall issued by Les Fumoirs de Saintonge in mid-July only involved smoked trout, with the company just recently expanding the action to salmon toward month’s end.
Carrefour is a multinational French retailer headquartered in Boulogne Billancourt, France, in the Hauts-de-Seine Department near Paris. It is considered to be one of the largest hypermarket chains in the world.
