Long-life cow’s milk sold in supermarkets including Leclerc, Auchan, and Intermarché has been recalled across France.
The recall was issued after several clients complained about the milk. The defect has been described as an ‘organoleptic’ problem, meaning an issue with flavour, texture, or smell.
For example, it may curdle when heated.
