Consumers have been advised not to eat the affected batches.

Aldi Ireland is recalling certain batches of its Roosters Breaded Chicken Goujons due to the presence of salmonella.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland issued a food safety alert on Tuesday, advising consumers not to eat the affected batches which originated in Ireland.

People infected with salmonella typically develop symptoms between 12 and 36 hours after infection, though it can range between six and 72 hours.

The most common symptom of salmonella is diarrhoea, which can sometimes be bloody.

Other symptoms may include fever, headache and abdominal cramps, with the illness usually lasting four to seven days.

According to the FSAI: “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 affected batches of the Roosters Breaded Chicken Goujons have a pack size of 320g, the batch codes 20300B and 20323B and best before end dates of October 2021 and November 2021.
