Seven salmonella symptoms to look out for as 100 chicken products recalled from stores

By Joseph Wilkes

Supermarkets and eateries have been forced to remove over 100 chicken products from their shelves due to fears they could be contaminated with salmonella.

If you digest a food product infected with salmonella, it is likely you will know about it fairly quickly - although not everyone gets sick as a result.

The food poisoning is a nasty stomach bug that causes vomiting and diarrhoea, with symptoms generally showing within eight hours of eating.

Pret A Manger has withdrawn all items containing chicken from its shelves, while supermarkets including Aldi and Sainsbury's have pulled sandwiches, wraps and other chicken goods.

Waitrose and Marks and Spencer have also recalled chicken products over the salmonella fears.

Meanwhile, Sainsbury's has pulled more than 30 chicken products from stores, including a chicken and bacon sub roll and BBQ wings, as a "precautionary measure".

NHS seven main signs of food poisoning

  1. Diarrhoea
  2. Stomach cramps
  3. Vomiting
  4. Fever
  5. High temperature
  6. Aches and pains
  7. Generally feeling unwell

Salmonellosis develops after ingesting salmonella bacteria, and symptoms usually take between 12 and 72 hours to develop.

But not everyone gets symptoms and the NHS says it could lay low for "a few weeks" before presenting itself.

You can usually treat the illness at home and the symptoms will likely pass within a week.

The most important thing is to have lots of fluids, such as water or squash, to avoid dehydration. In some extreme cases, people can become dehydrated and require hospital care.

Pret A Manger became the latest high street chain to recall all chicken products due to fears of salmonella contamination with its suppliers earlier this week.

It comes after budget supermarket Aldi announced it would be recalling all of its chicken and bacon Caesar wraps earlier today.

Pret said the removal of the products is a "precautionary measure" due to concerns of a possible "food safety risk" with their supplier.

A Pret A Manger spokesperson told MailOnline: "As a precautionary measure, we've temporarily removed the majority of chicken items on our menu due to a potential food safety risk at one of our suppliers.

"We hope to have these products back in shops soon. We apologise for any inconvenience."

Aldi is recalling some of its chicken wraps because of fears some are also tainted with the bacteria.

The discount supermarket chain is recalling its Eat + Go chicken and bacon Caesar wraps, both double and triple options.

The Food Standards Agency, which regulates food in the UK, said: "Symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhoea, and abdominal cramps."

Aldi said: "We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation."

This year has already seen a host of supermarkets and big brands recall products tainted with salmonella.

The most high profile has been Kinder, which had to recall its Kinder Surprise and Mini Egg chocolates as more than 100 people caught food poisoning from the treats.
