New Buitoni scandal: Franprix stores continue to sell Fraich’up pizzas which have been withdrawn from the market for having caused the death of 2 children and dozens of patients (RMC)

It is a scandal in the scandal which is revealed this morning by our colleagues from RMC this morning. Buitoni pizzas from the Fraich’Up range, which have made dozens of people seriously ill, causing the death of two children, are still on sale in some supermarkets when normally they have all been withdrawn from the shelves.

However, according to information from RMC, some distributors continue to market the offending pizzas. Monday morning, very close to the Champs-Elysées, in the heart of Paris, RMC noticed that there was on the shelves of a Franprix store, from the Casino group, a box of Buitoni pizza from the Fraich’Up range.. At the checkout, no problem paying: 7.45 euros for the pizza.

Lawyer Richard Legrand, who defends fifteen families of victims in this case, is furious as he told RMC and fears new victims: “It’s unacceptable, it’s incomprehensible. There, we are when even in a tourist area. It is quite possible that someone passed by, bought some, and fell ill. We don’t know how many pizzas were sold. We will have to do national checks.”

RMC says it checked whether other stores were affected and claims to have found another quite easily. Again, it’s a Franprix in the heart of Paris…

Franprix claims to have requested the destruction of all the pizzas, but the distributor admits to trusting its nearly 400 franchisees and not verifying that the pizzas have indeed been destroyed.

A distributor who does not comply with a withdrawal-recall procedure risks 5 years in prison and a fine of up to 10% of turnover.
