Massive recall in France: do not consume this food which can be dangerous for your health, it is pizza dough

The government site Rappel Conso informs consumers that pizza dough preparations are affected by a recall procedure. The products have been sold in several stores in France and may cause an allergic reaction. Here is all there is to know.

The batch affected by the recall

Preparations for making pizza dough are affected by a recall. They are of the Casino brand and have been sold in several stores including Spar, Vival and Casino. The products are recalled because their rate of dust mites is abnormally high.

The 500 g pizza dough mix “my easy pizza dough” concerned by the recall comes from lot 243 and has the article code 3222475459900. The date of minimum durability of the product is August 26, 2022.

The recalled batch should not be consumed as it may cause allergic reactions in susceptible individuals. What you have to do is throw it away or bring it back to the point of sale to get a refund. In case of doubt, it is possible to contact the consumer service at 0800133016. Note that the end date of the recall procedure is set for July 25, 2022.

Reminder of 3 batches of cakes
