Several flavours of Malo yoghurts have been recalled in France due to a risk of Escherichia coli, more commonly known as E. coli. 

It includes the flavours plain (nature), sweetened (sucré), grenadine (grenadine) and raspberry (framboise). You can find out more about the recall of each flavour on the dedicated official French website Rappel Conso by clicking the hyperlinks. 

All of the yoghurts were put on sale between June 8 and 10 with expiry dates from between July 11 to July 22, 2022, depending on flavour. 

The yoghurts are distributed throughout France and are manufactured in Saint-Malo (Ille-et-Vilaine).

People who have bought them are advised not to eat them and to return to the shop where they bought them to claim their money back. For those without a receipt, the shop may give reimbursements if the yoghurt packaging (empty or unopened) is returned. 

E. coli can cause stomach pains and diarrhoea (possibly accompanied by blood) within three days of consumption, with or without fever. If you have any symptoms, you should consult your doctor.
