Aflatoxins are mycotoxins that can be present in different products such as grains, coffee, rice, raisins and dried fruits.

There is no direct risk. Aflatoxin only presents a health risk with high and repeated consumption. However, people who hold these products are asked not to consume them and to return them to the point of sale where they will be reimbursed.

For any further information, you can contact the Carrefour Belgium consumer service by dialing the free number 0800.9.10.11 , from 8:30 am to 8:00 pm, Monday to Saturday.

The company BELLOWS FOOD apologizes to Carrefour customers for the inconvenience.
