Tesco has recalled a batch of almonds due to the presence of salmonella.

The Tesco Organic Almonds product was found to have been implicated with salmonella, which could lead to salmonellosis if consumed.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has urged customers not to eat the product and to return it to a Tesco store.

They said:

“Tesco Ireland is recalling one batch of its Tesco Organic Almonds, due to the presence of Salmonella.

“Tesco Ireland has issued in-store notices requesting customers who have bought the implicated batch not to consume it and instead, to return it to a Tesco store.”

The batch code of affected products is L8004010. Its best before date is February 2019.

Salmonellosis can cause diarrhoea, vomiting, muscle pain. More severe symptoms include bloody stool and debilitating stomach cramps.
