Supermarket giant Tesco has urgently recalled two of its chicken salad products after the discovery of a germ which causes diarrhoea, fever and cramps.
The products in question that must not be eaten are, the ‘160g chicken salad’ and the ‘315g chicken, broccoli, almond and cashew nut salad’, due to the presence of the germ called ‘Campylobacter’, according to the Food Standards Agency.
“The usual symptoms caused by Campylobacter are fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps,” said the FSA.
“If you have bought any of the above products do not eat them. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”
Tesco said: “We have been made aware by our supplier that they have detected campylobacter in a small number of products. Tesco is recalling the affected products as a precaution.”
