Listeria: what are the risks of this bacteria?

The Consumer Reminder site therefore invites consumers to “who have consumed the products mentioned above and who present with fever, isolated or accompanied by headaches, and body aches, to consult their doctor and report this consumption“.

Moreover,”serious forms with neurological complications and maternal or fetal damage in pregnant women can also sometimes occur“, specifies the site.

Fragile individuals (pregnant women, immunocompromised people and the elderly) must therefore be particularly attentive to these symptoms. Listeriosis is a disease that can be serious and has an incubation period of up to eight weeks.

Therefore, it is recommended to no longer consume these batches of turkeys. You can destroy them or return them to the point of sale in order to benefit from a refund until the end date of the recall procedure: February 23, 2024. A contact number has been set up: 02 33 30 34 00.
