FSAI Recall Processed Chicken & Salmon

As a precaution and further to Food Safety Authority Ireland (Food Alert 2020.55), Dunnes Stores and Lidl have yesterday recalled its Cooked Chicken Pieces and Cooked Chicken Tikka Pieces; due to the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

The Batch Code: P3629 and P4629; with a ‘Use by date’ of Oct. 2nd 2020, will see the removal of the implicated batches by all retailers and a ‘point-of-sale recall notices’ erected in all stores where the affected batches were being offered for sale.

Today the Food Safety Authority Ireland (Food Alert 2020.61) has also recalled a batch (Batch Code: 208; use-by date: 31.09.2020) of Coastguard Seafoods Smoked Salmon also due to the detection of Listeria monocytogenes.

Symptoms of Listeria monocytogenes infection can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. In rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications.

Some people are more vulnerable to Listeria monocytogenes infections, including pregnant women, babies, and people with weakened immune systems, including the elderly.

The incubation period (time between initial infection and first symptoms appearing) is on average 3 weeks but can range between 3 and 70 days.

In all cases consumers are strongly advised not to eat the implicated batches.
