As is regularly the case, Objeko informs you today of an important recall on a product . Indeed, it is once again a question of a food that is simply unfit for consumption. So let’s find out without further ado what it is exactly.
Product recall: check your stocks!
Very strict legislation
When talking about food safety, keep in mind that there are a multitude of rules in this area. Of course, the goal is to assure consumers that they are not taking any risks regarding what will end up on their plate. To do this, the legislator thus requires producers and distributors to meet very precise specifications. Controls are therefore very numerous with sometimes discoveries which require recalls of products in relation to these foodstuffs which do not correspond in all respects to what is provided for by law.
In this area, there are obviously all the pathogens that risk making us sick in the short or long term. You will certainly have already heard of salmonellosis or Listeria which unfortunately are regularly found in food intended for food. However, this is not the only problem that can be seen. It can also be a breach of the rules on expiry dates or defective packaging. When this kind of problem arises, the response is always the same. In order not to take the slightest risk, the chain stores immediately initiate an immediate product recall. Today, it is therefore the same situation that we are experiencing, this time due to the presence of a dye which is not one of the adjuvants authorized by the authorities.
Attention danger !
The last days, Objeko already drew your attention to product recalls concerning smoked salmon, sausage or appetizer biscuits. In other words, it was a question of being vigilant at the time of the aperitif. Moreover, this is once again the case with what we are talking about today for you. It is now a question of checking your cupboards to find out if you have not recently bought crisps which must be immediately withdrawn of the circuit. Due to their content of this problematic dye, in fact, it is strictly not recommended to consume them.
To be completely precise in relation to this new product recall, let us specify that we are talking here about “Tortilla chips with flavor Chile Camarillo ». A snack that was marketed by the Grand Frais brand between June 15 of last year and February 7, 2022. Its content of Sudan II (the aforementioned dye) effectively forces its removal from the shelves. Note that the number GTIN is the 3580282930068 and that the date of minimum durability is between March 1 and August 29, 2022. If so, you find that you are in possession of these chips, Objeko tells you how to react.
Product recall: A very simple procedure
When the consumer faces a recall on the product, the priority is obviously to take no risk in terms of his health. From then on, it is obviously possible for you to simply throw it away so that it no longer ends up in your cupboards. However, this is a dead loss for your wallet. You can also bring it back to the store for a refund of your purchase. On this subject, there are also very specific rules according to which you do not have to produce the slightest receipt. All you have to do is go to the store that sold you this food and the employee will give you your money back without delay. A way to guarantee satisfaction but also the most basic rights of customers.
