Packs of chicken cordons bleus are being recalled to Carrefour supermarkets across France because of a risk of “injury” or other “undesirable effects” linked to pieces of plastic which may have found their way into the product.

Government information service RappelConso states that the items concerned are:

  • From Carrefour 

  • With the GTIN code 3560071012489

  • With the use-by date: April 30 2022

  • And the health mark FR 29.236.010 CE

  • Sold between April 6 and April 26 

If you have bought this product, you are advised not to eat it but to instead take it back to the shop where you will be given a refund. If you do not return it, you should throw it away.
