Chicken goujons urgently recalled from Irish stores over salmonella fears

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has issued a recall notice for specific batches of frozen Glenhaven deli style premium breaded chicken goujons.

Two batches of Glenhaven Deli Style Premium Breaded Chicken Goujons are being recalled.

The batches are 22273B, best before end: Dec 2023 and 22276B, best before end: Jan 2024.

Both products were produced in Ireland and are sold in Irish stores.

The FSAI said the batches of the frozen breaded chicken goujons are being recalled due to the presence of salmonella. 

The FSAI said point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.

It has also asked retailers to remove the implicated batches from sale and display the FSAI notice at point of sale. 

The FSAI has warned that people infected with salmonella typically develop symptoms between 12 and 36 hours after infection, but this can range between 6 and 72 hours. 

The most common symptom is diarrhoea, which can sometimes be bloody.  Other symptoms may include fever, headache and abdominal cramps. 

The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days.

The FSAI has also advised that diarrhoea can occasionally be severe enough to require hospital admission with older people, infants, and those with impaired immune systems more likely to have a severe illness.
