The ’4 Ready To Cook Southern Fried Chicken Fillets’ batch in question have a best before date of 8 March 2024.

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

This comes after the supermarket last month recalled another batch of the chicken with a best before date of 1 March 2021. 

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.

The FSAI announced the recall on its website this evening.
