In April, the news pages are full of food recall warnings. The best known is undoubtedly the children’s chocolate from Ferrero. Today, Silverswan brand soy sauce is being recalled. If you bought it in your favorite supermarket, do not consume it, you must return it urgently.

Recall alert throughout France

Recently, the number of products being removed from the shelves seems to have exploded. However, one must put the matter into perspective, because it is a current fact. In fact, there are some every day. Nevertheless, between March and April, many articles were massively recalled.

This is especially true for contaminated Kinder chocolates, boxes of top-budget sugar, or even Buitoni-branded frozen pizzas. And so many more… If these products have been recalled, it is because they have been classified as dangerous or may be dangerous to the public.

In particular, this dangerousness is explained by the presence of a certain component or bacterium that can cause disease or poisoning. The most common is salmonella poisoning, which can cause salmonellosis. In this regard, after the Kinder case, Europe has seen 150 cases of salmonellosis.

Silverswan Soy Sauce recalled

Stay alert as another product has been added to the already long list. This is Silverswan brand soy sauce. The product is suspected of containing a contaminant 3-mcpd for good reason.

You might have bought some, because between January 17th and January 1st soy sauce was on sale across France.ah March 2022. The food product was sold in one liter bottles. The government site Rappel Conso gave all the information to identify the famous sauce.

The barcode 79809001624 Lot 2022017483 is shown on each bottle. So check your closets and shelves. We never know ! And don’t let the expiration date fool you. Although August 16, 2023 is marked, the sauce is simply not edible or you risk getting sick.

Rather than take that risk, the safest thing would be to destroy or throw it away, being careful to empty the bottle. If it’s too wasteful for you, bring the product back to the store, no matter how many. The supermarket will then proceed with the refund even without a receipt.

More than 300 reminders every month

Between March 2021 and March 2022, almost 4,300 of its products were recalled in France. That’s an average of about 350 callbacks per month. An incredible number considering that there are only 30 days in a month. There are, of course, various reasons for these memories.

This can be due to poor labeling, the presence of pathogens (listeria, salmonella, etc.) or even hazardous materials (cobalt, glass, etc.). For example, the massive recall of ice cream across Europe since autumn 2020 has been linked to the presence of ethylene oxide.

Track all product recalls

With hundreds of product recalls every day, it’s important to stay up to date on recalls. You can also get the list of recalled products by visiting the Rappel Conso government website. In fact, it’s the most reliable source because it comes from the government. Therefore, you will find detailed information sheets on all products affected by a recall on the website.

What are the risks involved?

It goes without saying that the recalled products should be banned. They can therefore no longer be consumed. As we said above, they are potentially dangerous, even deadly in some cases. Most of the time, the associated risks boil down to chemical poisoning, contracting diseases, or even swallowing sharp objects like glass.

In short, the risks are great. Vigilance is therefore essential because your health and that of your family is at stake.
