Jam is one of the everyday consumer products as many French consume it daily. Be careful though, as some pots are subject to a product recall. For good reason, these products can harm the health of those who ingest them. All the details in this article.
Lot affected by product recall?
In France, jam is very popular with young and old. If most of the time it is eaten for breakfast, some also consume it during a snack. Its dark taste is simply a pleasure for the mouth. However, you need to be very knowledgeable before buying one.
Indeed, a product recall campaign touches jars of jam. And this, for some time due to a possible presence of foreign bodies in the jars. These jams that are the subject of the product recall are those with apricot and orange marmalade.

Don’t eat this ham
A few days before these jams, we had already been warned not to eat ham. A contamination with Listeria monocytogenes would be the cause. This is a bacterium that causes listeriosis. This disease leaves serious consequences for the health of those who contract it.
Note that the incubation period for listeria is very long and can last up to 8 weeks. Symptoms of this disease can be “Fever, isolated or accompanied by headache and muscle aches”. These symptoms are particularly common in elderly and pregnant women.
