The Carrefour brand continues to recall some of its food products. This time, it is rice cakes with cereals, sold everywhere in France, which would contain mycotoxins.
After merguez sausages, raclette cheese, prawns or even pâté en croute, certain Carrefour brand foods are once again at the heart of product recalls. This Wednesday, October 19, the distributor recalled two types of cereal pancakes from its Carrefour Bio brand.
Which products are affected?
The recall concerns the Carrefour BIO 4-grain pancakes 100 g and the Carrefour ORGANIC brown rice cakes 100 g. These products were marketed between 07/06/2022 and 18/10/2022 in all Carrefour stores in France. The reason for their recall: potential presence of mycotoxins.

What if you have it at home?
As pointed out the ANSES website (National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health Safety), mycotoxins are natural contaminants of foodstuffs of plant origin. In the event of consumption of these products, the risk incurred by the consumer is the ingestion of aflatoxins, toxins produced by molds.
The Conso Reminder website (the government site that lists all recalls of finished products intended for consumers) advises you to do not consume the productto destroy it, to contact the consumer service and to take it back to the storeat the nearest point of sale, in order to proceed with a refund.
