Guasch products may be contaminated

France 3/Scoop, Apr 22

The company Guasch from Perpignan recalled two lots of "fuet catalan” sold in the Pyrénées-Orientales, Aude and Hérault. They could be contaminated with salmonella. In recent days, 10 cases of gastroenteritis in children have been detected in Occitanie.

These are packages of 160 g marketed under the trademark "Guasch", manufactured in Spain and bearing the health mark ES.10.07610 / B.
They were sold individually between February 2, 2017 and April 18, 2018 in the supermarkets and hypermarkets of the departments mentioned above and bear the following lot numbers:

lot n ° 032 best before date 02 May 2018
lot n ° 039 best before date 09 may 2018

Health authorities recommend that people who still have these products should not consume them and consult a doctor in case signs of gastroenteritis (diarrhea, vomiting, often accompanied by fever ...) occur after the consumption of these products. The incubation time can range from 6 to 72 hours.

According to the Independent, Bernard Guasch, the boss of the company of the same name, said he was "sorry for the consequences related to the marketing of these products made in Spain".

“These are not our products, they are manufactured in Catalonia and they are simply sold under our brand. It is a regrettable incident of course that will not happen again. We are not working with this company again.”
