Recall of compotes for children everywhere in France

Be careful if you have in your cupboards compotes for children. A set of Mat & Lou water bottles, sold in The stores of the sign U, is the subject of a procedure of reminder since Tuesday, reports Actu.fr.

The compotes were marketed throughout France in the chain’s various stores (Super U, Hyper U). This is lot L8937, which concerns apple strawberry-apple apricot gourds without added sugar of 6×90 g, specifies the official site Drink reminder. The date of minimum durability of compotes is set for October 1, 2023.

A risk of gastrointestinal disorders

These compote gourds contain too high levels of patulin, a mycotoxin resulting from the presence of various microscopic mold-producing fungi. According to ANSES, a high ingestion of patulin can cause gastrointestinal disordersulcerations, distentions, haemorrhages and kidney disorders.

Consumers are therefore advised not to eat these compotes and to destroy them. They can also bring them back to the store for a refund. This option is possible until March 5, 2023, the end date of the recall procedure, in the U sign where the compote gourds were purchased.
