The possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the products listed above.

Symptoms caused by this organism can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea. However, in rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications, such as meningitis.

This alert is unrelated to the ongoing Listeria monocytogenes outbreak which has been reported recently in the media.
