An urgent recall alert was sent to Lidl customers in Ireland following the detection of Salmonella in a batch of products.
The supermarket giant is asking people not to eat a specific batch of its luxury stuffed dates for fear of food safety.
The warning was released on Tuesday by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland.
According to the FSAI, people infected with Salmonella usually develop symptoms between 12 and 36 hours after infection, but it can vary between six and 72 hours.
The most common symptom is diarrhea, which can sometimes be bloody.
Other symptoms can include fever, headache, and abdominal cramps, and the illness usually lasts four to seven days.
Diarrhea can sometimes be severe enough to require hospitalization, and older people, infants, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have serious illness.
The luxury stuffed dates recalled by Lidl have a package size of 240g, a lot code of 21301/196 and an expiration date of January 21, 2022.
Consumers are advised not to eat the affected lot and point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in Lidl stores supplied with the affected products.
