More than 60 ice cream products due to carcinogenic pesticides were recalled

With this summer temperature, the test is the best way to enjoy an ice cream. But, before you get involved, it’s a good idea to make sure the chosen treat is safe: more than sixty ice creams are currently subject to a product recall.

Many major brands such as Neto, Carrefour, Picard or Adele (Intermarch) have warned consumers about this. A complete list of related products can be consulted on the site Consumption Reminder, Should not be consumed due to their pesticide content, which violates “limits approved by European regulations”.

The substance in question is ethylene oxide, which is classified as “Cancer, Mutation and Recycling Agency (CMR)” by the Directorate of Competition, Consumption and Fraud Control (DGCCRF). Its use has therefore been “banned in the EU since 2011 as a preservative for food and fodder”.

Ethylene oxide, which is used in the pharmaceutical and food industries, especially as a contraceptive agent, has already made a name for itself. By the end of 2020, more than 800 products containing sesame were already remembered because they were in them. At the time, the DGCCRF did not “necessarily” observe an “immediate risk of observation levels”.
