  Christmas celebrations: Foie gras, prawns, salmon, beware of these products recalled throughout France

This year will be different in every way. Indeed, after a summer under the sign of inflation, a much too hot month of October and now a winter in energy crisis. The Christmas meal will also undergo some changes. For example, many products, although unmissable at the Christmas party, seem to be in the product recall procedure . We'll explaine everything here.

Foie gras, traditional for Christmas, as a reminder

Indeed, the meal for the Christmas party is no exception to product recall campaigns. If you planned to serve the very traditional foie gras , we should be careful . Indeed, the price of the latter remains much higher than in other years. This is due in particular to the fact that the bird flu has decimated many farms. But also, the usual imports of animals from the East, there could not have been any . So inevitably, the price increases as the supply decreases.


In addition to the price of foie gras, we must pay attention to the various product recall campaigns. In effect, the Christmas party would be very different if directly after the entrance, you all had listeriosis . Thus, this week already three foie gras remain in recall procedure. First we find the Whole goose foie gras from Périgord from the Seigneurie brand , whose GTIN number remains 3435030009018 and has a DLC as of May 10 of this year. If the latter remains in the recall procedure, this is because of the DLC which seems to be largely outdated.

We also find in product recall the Branded whole duck foie gras head . The batches concerned by the procedure remain the A314 with the GTIN numbers 3018251490003 and 3018251489007, the DLC of which goes to February 28 of this year. Again, the label contains an error. Finally, the last foie gras recalled in recent days turns out to be Block of duck foie gras with pieces from the FEYEL & ARTZNER FEYEL brand. The affected lot is A035773FF with a GTIN number 3018258980002 and a minimum durability date of February 28, 2024. If this product remains in the recall procedure, it must be because of its changed smell (Organoleptic alteration).


During the Christmas party and especially during meals, there are many products from the sea. But here again, we will have to pay attention. It turns out that already five products that could be on your Christmas table are in recall procedures. The very first product remains the Salmon rillettes sold by the cut in the unbranded deli section . The batch in question remains the one manufactured on December 3 of this year with a DLC on December 20. If it has been recalled, it persists because of the presence of listeria. We also find the American lobster sold at Lidl . It comes in a 350 gram packet and they too contain listeria bacteria. The batches in question remain those with the GTIN number 20257262 and a minimum durability date of August 17, 24 or 25, 2024.

The other products that could spoil your Christmas party also seem Premier brand cooked langoustines. The affected lot remains 235351 with a GTIN number 8712671899921 and a DLC on December 26 of this year. In question, a concern in the label which does not stipulate the presence of sulphite, yet a source of allergies. We also found creole shrimp without brands that sold in many large distributors . The batch in question remains 22332 with a DLC on December 15. The latter are being recalled because of the presence of listeria. And also, Smoked Salmon Highlands of Scotland 300G – 10 T by the Petit Vessel brand . The batch concerned remains 10352143280 with GTIN 3760253432306 and a DLC on January 4th. Due to this recall, the fact that there are two different DLCs written.

The chaperone in reminder product

But, if the entree and seafood at the Christmas party doesn't seem reliable, neither does the main course. Very often, the French serve capon. This year, you will have to pay attention to which capon of which brand you have taken , as some appear to carry listeria. Among the products in question are Capon Legs S/V x2 Halal from the brand Decoupage de capon . The lot in question remains 0362011290 with a DLC that goes to December 13. We also count Unbranded Naked Capon Legs with batch number 0362011292 and a DLC on December 8.

Or even CHAPON THIGHS 450-550 S/V x4 lot number 0362011290 and 0362011369 with a DLC on December 13. So, if you bought capon to freeze it before the Christmas meal, to consume it after its expiry date, you will have to be careful with the product.


Indeed, the Rappel Conso site reminds us why listeria can become so serious. This bacterium can degenerate into listeriosis and cause serious problems. The site declares in case of “ fever, isolated or accompanied by headaches, and body aches, are invited to consult their doctor and report this consumption. Severe forms with neurological complications and maternal or fetal damage in pregnant women can also sometimes occur. Pregnant women as well as immunocompromised people and the elderly should be especially alert to these symptoms. Listeriosis is a disease that can be serious and has an incubation period of up to eight weeks ”.
