?At least three French retailers have had to issue recalls in the last four years - Media Credit:

A total of
fourteen E. coli infections
– all in children under the age of five – have been
linked to cheese consumption in France this spring, one of which resulted in
kidney failure, and death.


Cheese producer
Fromagerie Chabert has recalled products Reblochons and Le Tartiflard, after
seven cases were linked to the company’s products.

The cheeses
have now been pulled from the shelves at Lidl, Leclerc and Auchan stores.

The French
Ministry of Agriculture has indicated that the E. coli is appearing in cheese
products manufactured from ‘Nos regions ont du talent’ branded milk.


This is by
no means the first time E. coli has been linked to cheese in France. 

Not only has the connection been studied by established microbiologists, but additional recalls include that of La Fromagerie Hamel products in 2014, and Roquefort products in 2015.

This year,
a recall and warning has also been issued in Canada, where Wholefoods stores
stock Reblochons cheese.
