Recall: a batch of ground beef withdrawn from the shelves


Each day is enough to remember. Since the implementation of the Rappel Conso platform in the spring of 2021, communication around products removed from the shelves because they are unfit for consumption has been greatly facilitated.

On Monday, December 12, 2022, the system alerted to the recall of a 99% minced beef preparation with vinegar from the Hello Fresh brand, marketed from November 22 to December 9, 2022.

In question ? A use-by date exceeded at the time of delivery to the consumer. The batch reference is A32597600, and the affected product has a best before date of December 3, 2022.

People who have this minced meat tray in their possession are invited to no longer consume the product, nor use it in culinary preparations. It is recommended to get rid of expired meat and contact consumer service at 0176276777 in order to obtain a refund. Please note, however: the recall procedure ends on Friday, December 23, 2022.

If some foods can be eaten a few days, even months or years after the deadline, this is hardly the case for meat. So, always rely on the date indicated on the packaging for everything concerning pink, red or white meat. After purchase, consume the meat within 3 to 4 days and pay attention to its smell and appearance. If it’s slimy or smells like ammonia, don’t take any chances and throw it away.
