Recall Of Batches Of Raw Chicken Products

Irish Food Safety Authority recall batches of various raw chicken products; country of origin Ireland, due to the presence of Salmonella Typhimurium.

Western Brand is recalling expired batches of raw chicken products, listed hereunder, due to the detection of Salmonella Typhimurium. These products were sold as fresh and are past their use-by date, however, the labels state they are suitable for home freezing. Recall notices at retail stores will be displayed at point-of-sale.

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.

Consumers are advised not to eat the affected batches, should they have consigned them to their freezers.
