The ’4 Ready To Cook Southern Fried Chicken Fillets’ batch in question have a best before date of 1 March 2024.

Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batch.

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

The most common symptom is diarrhoea, which can sometimes be bloody. Other symptoms may include fever, headache, and abdominal cramps. Diarrhoea can occasionally be severe enough to require hospital admission. 

The illness usually lasts four to seven days.

The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have more severe illness.

Symptoms of listeria monocytogenes infection can include mild flu-like symptoms, or gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.

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 three and 70 days.

The FSAI also announced the recall on its website this evening.
