Sales period: from 7/3 to 10/3/2016

Halle, Belgium, 2016-Mar-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — During inspections of minneolas 1.5 kg packed in nets, our supplier found that the authorised amount of Carbaryl was exceeded in a specific batch of goods.

Carbaryl is an insecticide. The toxic quantity is absorbed by the rind of the minneolas.

Repeated and frequent intake of Carbaryl can cause headaches, muscle  weakening, nausea, stomach cramps, transpiration and restlessness. For this reason, Colruyt Belgium and Luxembourg, Collect&Go and OKay remove these minneolas from the shelves. They ask their customers not to consume the product and to return it to the store. The product will then be refunded.

Meanwhile, all stores have removed the products from the shelves.
