SUPERMARKETS and restaurants across the country have been forced to pull chicken products off their shelves due to salmonella fears.

Salmonella is a nasty stomach bug that causes vomiting and diarrhea.

Once it enters the body, it causes symptoms in just eight hours — but not everyone gets sick.

Britons have been warned to be on the lookout for signs and symptoms as Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Pret and M&S have removed all chicken sandwiches and other poultry products.

The chains have scrapped a range of ready-to-eat foods, including sandwiches, wraps and salads, because of food poisoning risks.

Sainsbury’s has pulled more than 30 chicken products from stores because they may contain salmonella.

The supermarket said the recall, which includes a sub-roll with chicken and bacon and grilled wings, was a “precautionary measure.”

But what are the signs of the error to look out for?

The NHS says the main signs of poisoning are:

  1. Diarrhea
  2. Stomach cramps
  3. Vomit
  4. Fever
  5. high temperature
  6. discomfort and pain
  7. general malaise

Salmonellosis develops after ingestion of salmonella bacteria, and symptoms usually develop between 12 and 72 hours.

However, not everyone gets symptoms. And the NHS says the signs could lie “a couple of weeks” low before they emerge.

They usually last between four and seven days and don’t require treatment – although in extreme cases sufferers may need to be hospitalized for the resulting dehydration, which can be dangerous.

Persons infected with Salmonella should remember to drink plenty of fluids.

How is salmonella transmitted?

Salmonella is usually spread in contaminated food that is not properly prepared before consumption.

The bacteria live in the intestines of many livestock.

Therefore, people usually become infected by eating raw or undercooked meat, poultry, eggs, or egg products (such as mayonnaise).

During slaughtering, salmonella can be transferred from the faeces of the animals to the meat.

To ensure bacteria are killed before eating, be sure to cook meat thoroughly.

Do not wash raw poultry, meat or eggs before cooking.

Fruit, vegetables and shellfish can also be contaminated by manure in the soil or sewage in the water.

You should wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating or cooking.

Salmonella can also contaminate processed foods like nut butters, frozen pies, and chicken nuggets.

Turtles, terrapins, and pet reptiles can carry the bacteria, while dogs, cats, and rodents can also sometimes become infected.

In addition, salmonella can be passed from person to person through poor hygiene.

If you don’t wash your hands after using the restroom or preparing food like raw chicken, it can spread.

Doctors may recommend a rehydration solution from a pharmacy, and antibiotics are needed in some cases.

Anyone can get the bug, but small children, the elderly, pregnant women and others with weakened immune systems, such as B. cancer patients are particularly susceptible.

Is it life threatening?

Salmonella is not usually life-threatening, with less than one percent of those affected dying.

However, complications can arise that are more dangerous for vulnerable people.

With diarrhea there is a risk of dehydration, which is always severe.

When a salmonella infection gets into your bloodstream, it can infect tissues throughout your body, including around the brain, heart, and blood vessels, the Mayo Clinic says.

Some people may develop a condition called reactive arthritis, also known as Reiter’s syndrome, weeks or even months later. This causes joint pain, eye irritation, and painful urination.
