Recall of SFC Chicken Poppets batches over salmonella fears
Customers have been urged not to consume the affected batches of the popular product.
Batches of Original SFC Chicken Poppets are being recalled due to the detection of salmonella.
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) have advised customers not to eat the implicated batches, which originated from the United Kingdom.
Instead, point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in Tesco stores.
People infected with salmonella typically develop symptoms between 12 and 36 hours after infection, but this can also range between six and 72 hours.
The FSAI say: "The most common symptom is diarrhoea, which can sometimes be bloody.
"Other symptoms may include fever, headache and abdominal cramps.
"The illness usually lasts four to seven 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."
The implicated batches of Original SFC Chicken Poppets have a pack size of 190g and best before dates of 24 September 2021 (24.09.2021) and 31 October 2021 (31.10.2021).
Last week, the FSAI also issued a food recall alert for another batch of Original SFC Chicken Poppets with a pack size of 190g.
This batch had a best before date of 28 February 2022 (28.02.2022).
