Jay and Joy vegan cheese products recalled for possible presence of pathogenic bacteria
The Listeria Monocytogenes bacteria may be present in several Jay and Joy products.
The Singapore Food Authority (SFA) is recalling two additional Jay and Joy products from France due to possible presence of a pathogenic bacteria, it announced in a press release on Wednesday (Jan 25).
This follows an additional alert from the European Commission Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) on the implicated products. The two products, Jeta Frais and ParmiJoy, now join a list of six Jay and Joy products recalled on Jan 22 for the same reason.
SFA stated that the pathogenic bacteria, Listeria Monocytogenes, can cause foodborne illnesses. Symptoms may include fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhoea.
SFA has directed the importer, Eurolink Nutrition, to recall these products. All batches and use by dates between Jan 14, 2023, and Mar 30, 2023, are affected.
Consumers who have purchased the implicated products are advised by SFA not to consume it. Those who have consumed the implicated products and have concerns about their health should seek medical advice.
The other Jay and Joy products recalled are the Jeanne Le Blute Vegan Blue Cheese, Jill Vegan Goat Cheese, Josephine Vegan Brie, Vegan Pate, Vegan Geraspte Kaas Grated Cheese and Jean Jacques Vegan Maroilles. All batches and use by dates are affected for these six products.
