Urgent recall for popular products sold in Tesco and other Irish supermarkets over salmonella fears

By Marita Moloney

A number of products are being recalled from Irish stores due to the presence of salmonella.

Tesco and other supermarkets are removing the items from shops after the bacteria was found in several food items.

BakeAway is recalling specific batches of various raw pastry and dough products due to the presence of salmonella.

Among the brands affected are Galberts, Pizza Express and Tesco.

According to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, 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 and the illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days.

Diarrhoea can occasionally be severe enough to require hospital admission and the elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

The FSAI, which issued the alert on Tuesday, added that point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.

Consumers are advised not to use the implicated batches, listed below.
