Lidl is the latest supermarket to recall a popular food product because of the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) told customers: “Lidl is recalling McEnnedy Corn Dogs because Listeria monocytogenes has been found in the product and accompanying sauce.”
The FSA issued a risk statement regarding the recall: “The presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the above product.
“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.
“Some people are more vulnerable to listeria infections, including those over 65 years of age, pregnant women and their unborn babies, babies less than one month old and people with weakened immune systems.”
