What is salmonella?

Salmonella is one of the most common types of food poisoning.

Symptoms of salmonella include nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, high temperature, and feeling generally unwell such as tiredness or having aches and chills.

According to the NHS, symptoms can appear anywhere from a few hours after eating the contaminated food to a few weeks after.

The most important thing is to have lots of fluids to avoid dehydration.

What to do if you have purchased an affected item

If you’ve purchased one of the affected products, Fresher Foods advises you to return it to the place you bought the goods for a refund.

You won’t need a receipt to get your money back.

A statement on its website says: "All Freshers Foods products undergo rigorous quality and food safety inspections as part of our manufacturing process.

"We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience that this has caused. Thank you for your understanding."

Shoppers can also contact Fresher Foods by emailing [email protected] or calling 07968542 566.
