McDonald's: Listeria found in chicken Caesar salad in France

3 August, 2018

A major listeria outbreak has hit McDonald's in France, and could have spread to 350 locations. McDonald's branches in France have announced the presence of listeria in Chicken Caesar salads sold between July 9 and July 14. The fast food chain made a public recommendation on Wednesday August 1 that customers consult a doctor should certain symptoms appear. "As a precaution and only in the case of fever (whether or not accompanied by headaches), we recommend any customers who consumed a Chicken Caesar salad on the dates mentioned in any of the McDonald's branches listed, to consult a physician."
The batch of salads affected was supplied by French company FFS (Florette Food Services), which is known for having been partnered with McDonald's in France for a long time.
