Salmonella is a potentially fatal disease which may not even be eradicated by cooking, which is anyway not the case in the products concerned. Symptoms appearing six to 72 hours after consumption of tainted food include fever, stomach cramps and diarrhoea. Children, the elderly, pregnant women and anyone with a compromised immune system are particularly at risk. Medical advice should be sought immediately.
The alert was sent to Belgium by the Dutch authorities via the RASFF system – Rapid Alert for Food and Feed – of which both countries are members.
