Supermarkets across France are recalling smoked chicken – sold whole and in slices – because of a risk of listeria contamination. 

The supermarkets involved in the recall are Leader Price, Aldi, Franprix, Lidl and Casino. 

Listeria can cause an infection called listeriosis, which primarily affects pregnant women, newborn babies, immunosuppressed patients and the elderly.

In Lidl, the chicken came in a 1.25kg pack under the Étal du volailler brand. One affected batch had the GTIN 220618000000, the batch number 5412190087 and the use-by date of November 9, 2022. 

The other had the GTIN 220618000000, batch number 5412190135 and use-by date November 9. 

The chicken was sold between October 19 and 22, and the shops included in the recall can be found in this document.

In Aldi, the chicken belonged to the Corril brand, with the batch number 5412190071 and the use-by date November 7. It was sold from October 20-21.

In Leader Price, the product was sold as a whole chicken weighing around 1.5kg, which could also be found in Franprix from October 21-22.

The GTIN number was 0285847000000, the batch number was 5412190095 and the use-by date was November 7.

Finally, in Casino, the chicken was sold in slices under the Tous les jours brand between October 17 and October 21. 

The batch number was 5412190093 and the use-by date was November 7.

Customers having bought any of these products are advised not to consume them, and instead to take them back to the shop for a refund or exchange. 

If you have eaten potentially contaminated chicken and you experience a fever, muscle aches or a headache, you should contact your doctor. 

The recall procedure end dates vary depending on the supermarket; you can find out more through government alert website Rappel Conso.
