The product being recalled is:

No other Imperial Snack Foods Ltd products are known to be affected.

Salmonella is a bacterial infection. Most people that are infected with Salmonella develop diarrhoea, fever, vomiting, and abdominal cramps  between  and 72 hours after infection. In most cases, the illness usually lasts 3 to 7 days  and most affected persons recover without treatment.

Irwin Mitchell currently represent a number of consumers who contracted Salmonella after eating Cadburys chocolate. In June 2006, the Food Standards Agency forced Cadburys to withdraw a million chocolate bars from shops and supermarkets after Salmonella Montevideo was identified at one of its factories.
