Reuters in London has reported that Laiterie Fromagerie du Val d’Ay-Etablissement Reaux has pulled a few types of Camembert cheese from supermarkets, amid concern it may be contaminated with the E.coli bacterium, which can cause food poisoning.
The Food Standards Agency said the products present a potential health risk if eaten.
The withdrawn cheeses are Reaux’s Gaslonde Camembert, Camembert de Normandie Th. Reaux (both in 250 gram packs) and Reaux’s Gaslonde Camembert (in one kg packs).
The cheese’s UK distributor, Anthony Rowcliffe and Son Ltd, had contacted all the retailers it supplies, including retailer Waitrose.
