Fears that certain brands of camembert may be infected with the dangerous strain of E-coli, 026, have spread to include other raw milk products imported from France, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) announced yesterday (22 December).

The sale of all raw milk products produced by French company Laiterie Fromagerie du Val d’Ay-Etablissement REAUX is being halted due to concerns about possible E-coli 026 contamination.

Products can be identified by health mark F 50.267.01 CEE. The FSA says that E-coli 026 can cause severe food poisoning and people should avoid affected milk products. Anyone who thinks they might have bought one of these products should contact the retailer or their local authority.
