Goat cheese products from France recalled over potential presence of metal pieces
The Centre for Food Safety (CFS) urges the public not to consume a kind of goat cheese imported from France as the product might have been contaminated with metallic foreign bodies.
The affected product is "Casino STE MAURE Goat Log 200G" from the brand Casino, with the expiry date between September 25 to October 10 this year.
The trade should also stop using or selling the affected batches of the product, the Centre added.
A spokesman for the CFS said, "The CFS received a notification from the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed of the European Commission that the above-mentioned batches of product might have been contaminated with metallic foreign bodies."
A preliminary investigation found that the affected batches of the product had imported into Hong Kong. Local importers and distributors have stopped sales, removed the affected product from shelves, and initiated a recall according to the CFS's instructions.
