The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has recalled a batch of sliced of turkey meat due to the presence of Listeria.

Less is Best Premium Turkey Breast – packet size 120g – is being recalled after the presence of the bacteria was discovered.

Symptoms of Listeria monocytogenes infection can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness, the FSAI has warned.

In rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications, such as meningitis.

Some people are more vulnerable to the bacterial infections than others, including pregnant women, babies, and people with weakened immune systems, including the elderly.

Businesses which have sold the implicated batch of turkey meat directly to consumers must display a point-of-sale recall notice, the FSAI said today.
