Listeria: contaminated ham sold by Lidl withdrawn from the market nationwide

The illness can be “severe.” Ham sold in Lidl stores is being recalled throughout France due to contamination with listeria, the website Rappel Conso reported on Monday, which warns about dangerous products marketed in the country.

In detail, these are packages of four slices of Label Rouge superior crustless ham from the “Saint Alby” brand that are affected by this recall. They were sold between March 21 and 25 in Lidl stores and supermarkets. The list of these brands is available on the government website.
