Thanks to Cumulus they know who bought what at what time, and they have the contact details (hopefully up-do-date) of probably +95% of the buyers. Why don't they inform them by A-Post? Clearly this kind of issue warrants that extra step.
better still, they send their specially trained Migros moths to fly straight into my kitchen and destroy all offending stocks of said product.

I understand that, and know that this is the reason most products say "can contain traces of gluten". But it should not even be possible in a product which is actively advertised as "gluten free". There should have never been any gluten-containing product anywhere near the production line.
sometimes it can be as little as that somebody discovers one of the documents has not been stamped or signed or a label torn off. This is typically just forgetfulness on the part of some employee but there is a small probability that the package does not actually contain what it says on the label.

Re: Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

Google translated (with a little editing) and a pic of the product:

Migros is recalling M-Classic chicken breast slices in a duo pack. The affected product is frozen and has a sell-by date of 06.2019. The lot number is L-0026981975. The two packs, which are banded together, each weigh 350 grams. The price for the product is 6.85 francs.

The product may contain small pieces of metal. A health risk can not be excluded.

The poultry breast slices could be bought throughout Switzerland at the Migros branches and at LeShop.

Migros asks people not to consume the product. Instead, it should be returned to the store. The selling price will be refunded.

Nope, not in my stock. Gave-up buying anything but veggies from Migros since the last 2 fish recalls. Even then, I only buy unpacked veggies from there as baby frogs and various insect life is found in it far too often for my taste.

What he thought was a salad was actually of a different botanical origin.

And anyway, he shouldn't have smoked it.

I was thinking like this, not tadpoles. But techically you're right. A baby frog is a tadpole. This is just a miniature frog.



I wouldn't want either in my salad, though.

No, I think technically tadpoles aren't frogs like caterpillars aren't butterflies.

Re: Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

I don't really see the problem. When you pick your salad from your own garden you find all kinds of things and creatures in it too.

If one wants Migros or who ever to take salad apart, one has to buy the precut/prewashed salad in the plastic bag.
And I would suggest to read what they found in those salad bags. It's the stuff you can't see to be worried about.

The frog is basically telling you "this salad is okay"

I think you didn't watch the video. These were pre-bagged, pre.washed salads.
When I buy from Coop, it states on the packet that the salad if fully pre-washed and ready to consume. On any Migros packaged salad however, it states that it is pre-washed, but must be washed again before consumption.

I'm all into to bio, but not biotop. And as I don't eat meat, also a no-go, as well as the maggots recently found in their counter-fish.

I would not be surprised if in future one can buy salads that have been grown in quarantined zones on sterilised grounds with sterilised water by "farmers" looking like lab rats.

Well, the Dutch are pretty close to that with their tomatoes, aren't they.

An an FYI on the general subject, here are two official product recall websites to check now and again:

Recalls on foodstuffs, from the BLV:
https://www.blv.admin.ch/blv/de/home...warnungen.html

Other product recalls and safety information:
https://www.konsum.admin.ch/bfk/de/h...rmationen.html

Ktipp lists current recalls as well, another good reason to subscribe.
Thanks for this post and the thread.....

Re: Product recall .... is this in your cupboard?

Just saw something similar has occurred in the US. Couldn't help wondering if there's any connection.
