Aldi recalls Roosters Poppin’ Chicken due to the possible presence of Salmonella

Further to two alerts previously made by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI), Aldi is extending its recall to include all batches and all best-before dates of Roosters Southern Fried Poppin’ Chicken and Roosters Breaded Poppin’ Chicken.

All batches are being recalled due to the possible presence of Salmonella. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated products.

Retailers are requested to remove the implicated products from sale and consumers should not eat the implicated products.

It is noted that the country of origin of the products is Poland.

In September, Aldi recalled a batch of Roosters Southern Fried Poppin’ Chicken due to the presence of Salmonella. Earlier this month, it also recalled additional batches of Roosters Southern Fried Poppin’ Chicken and batches of Roosters Breaded Poppin’ Chicken.

Dangers of Salmonella

According to information by the FSAI, 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.

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.

Recall of some Bridge Bakery cakes due to possible presence of pieces of metal

Meanwhile, the FSAI has also issued a recall by Seerys Heatherfield Ltd, which recalled specified batches of its Bridge Bakery Carrot Cake, Lemon Cake and Triple Chocolate Cake due to the potential presence of pieces of metal.

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