Basmati rice recalled due to presence of carcinogenic toxins

The Lidl brand has recalled packages of basmati rice. Aflatoxins, carcinogenic toxins, have been detected there; reports Rappel Conso, the site for dangerous product alerts.

The product in question belongs to the Golden Sun brand. It is packaged in the form of a 1 kilo sachet. The barcode is 20073763 and the minimum durability date has been set to 01/11/2023, 01/12/2023 or 01/13/2023, depending on the pouches.
