Further to the FSAI’s food alert 2021.27, SFC is recalling the above batches of two additional chicken products due to the possible presence of Salmonella. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in the stores where the products were sold.
Nature Of Danger:
People infected with Salmonella typically develop symptoms between 12 and 36 hours after infection, but this can range between 6 and 72 hours. The most common symptom is diarrhoea, which can sometimes be bloody. Other symptoms may include fever, headache and abdominal cramps. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Diarrhoea can occasionally be severe enough to require hospital admission. The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.
Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, caterers & retailers:
Retailers must recall the implicated batches and display a point-of-sale recall notice.
Consumers are advised not to eat the implicated batches.
