Raw chicken sold in a number of supermarkets is being recalled due to the detection of salmonella.

The products are being recalled by Western Brand and were on sale in Aldi, Lidl, Dunnes. and Tesco.

Other products were sold under BWG's Glenmor brand available at other retail outlets.

The chicken products were sold fresh and are now past their use-by date but consumers may still have them in their freezers.

The products include breast fillets, legs, whole chickens, wings, and thighs.

Consumers are advised not to eat the affected batches.

People with salmonella typically develop symptoms 12-to-36 hours after infection.

The most common symptom is diarrhoea, but other symptoms include fever, headache and abdominal cramps.

A recall notice has been posted on the website of the Food Safety Authority of Ireland and notices will also be posted at the points of sale.
