Lidl has said that salmonella has only been found in this particular batch and no other products have been affected.

In a statement, the supermarket said, “If you have bought any of the available products do not consume them. Instead, return them to a Lidl GB store for a full refund, with or without a receipt.

“Alternatively, dispose of the product and email [email protected], including a photo of the affected product with best-before date and lot code.

“The team will process this refund via letter.”
