Batches of goat’s cheese are being recalled to Carrefour, Leclerc, Leader Price, Super U and Lidl supermarkets across France because of the potential presence of traces of metal within the product.

At Leclerc, the Sainte-Maure and Bûche Fondante goat’s cheese belonged to the ‘Les Croisés’ brand, and had the GTIN 356700606865 or 356700562406. Its use-by date would have sat between September 29 and October 14.

Système U sold the cheese under the ‘U’ brand, with the GTIN 3256224310525, with use-by dates between September 27 and October 15.
