The symptoms of a Listeria infection can mimic those of the flu, including high temperatures, muscle aches, chills, nausea, and diarrhoea. Alarmingly, in some rare instances, the infection can escalate to severe complications like meningitis. Particularly at risk are individuals over 65, pregnant women, babies under one month, and those with compromised immune systems.
Jesse Norman, from Lidl, expressed deep concern and stated that point-of-sale notices have been placed in stores where the product was sold. These notices provide clarity on the reason for the recall and instructions for customers who have purchased the product. For those seeking more information, Lidl's Customer Care is reachable at 0203 966 5566 or via email at [email protected].
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has highlighted that when a food product is deemed unsafe for sale, it is either 'withdrawn' from shelves or 'recalled', where customers are requested to return the product. The FSA ensures consumers and local authorities are informed about any food-related issues through Product Withdrawal and Recall Information Notices.
