The products in question are boxes of six, 10, 12 and 20 eggs sold in Leclerc stores under the Eco+ and Repère ranges from a supplier called Scamark. The eggs are marked with ‘2FROIR1’.
In addition, boxes of 10 eggs from the Ecoprix and Belle France brands, which are sold in shops such as Coccinelle, Cocci Market, Panier Sympa, Rapid’Market and some convenience stores are also concerned by the recall.
The eggs were generally sold between the beginning of June and last week, but more precise details can be found on the separate recall alerts.
RappelConso states that those who have bought eggs included in the recall should not consume them but should instead take them back to the shop or contact customer service on 0800 453 278.
Symptoms related to a salmonella infection normally begin between six and 72 hours after ingestion, and normally involve vomiting and diarrhoea.
They can be particularly pronounced in young children, pregnant women, elderly people and immunosuppressed patients.
If you have eaten affected eggs and present symptoms, you should consult your GP. However, if a week has passed since you consumed the eggs and you still have no symptoms, it probably means that you have escaped the infection.
Cooking the eggs at more than 65C normally destroys the bacteria.
