Packets of whole grain basmati rice are being recalled in France over traces of a banned pesticide.
The recall involves rice belonging to the Taureau Ailé brand, packaged in 500g bags and sold in most major supermarkets across France (Carrefour, Auchan, Galec, Cora, Intermarché and Casino).
The Lustucru group, responsible for the brand, has initiated the recall.
