Grated Emmental cheese sold between March 3 and March 11 is being recalled to Leclerc stores across France over concerns that the packets contain “pieces of white, translucent plastic.”
The Emmental in question is in a 500g pack belonging to the Les Croisés brand and has a use-by date of May 2 at the earliest.
