Further to FSAI Food Alert 2020.50, certain batches of Eat Natural Fruit & Nut products listed above are being recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination of the ingredient, brazil nuts. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.
Nature Of Danger:
People infected with Salmonella typically develop symptoms between 12 and 36 hours after infection, but this can range between 6 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 4 to 7 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.
A distribution list will be emailed to PEHOs in due course. Please notify FSAI (firstname.lastname@example.org) of any concerns.
Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, caterers & retailers:
Retailers are requested to remove the implicated batches from sale and to display a point-of-sale recall notice in stores where the affected batches were sold.
Wholesalers/distributors are requested to contact their affected customers and recall the affected batches and provide a point-of-sale recall notice to their retailer customers.
Caterers should not use the implicated batches.
Consumers should not eat the implicated batches.
