Super U has recalled a batch of frozen beef burgers over E.coli fears.

The supermarket chain has asked customers who have recently bought its burgers not to eat them and return them to the store from where they were bought.

The affected batch is the 1kg box containing 10 steaks, bearing the barcode 3256224170150, lot number 234 and the health stamp FR 44 036 007. The use-by date is 22/08/2020.

Anyone who has eaten the burger - and later presents with symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, or vomiting - should consult a doctor as soon as possible, making sure to mention the possible link to the product and potential E. coli poisoning.

The bacteria Escherichia coli naturally occurs in humans’ digestive system, but certain strains of it can lead to illness, causing anything from mild diarrhea to kidney infections and intestinal bleeding.

Young children, pregnant women, older people, or those with suppressed immune systems are particularly at risk.

Système U - which runs the Super U chain has provided customers with a freephone number to contact consumer services: 09 69 36 69 36 69 36.
