ASDA is recalling chicken products due to the possible presence of salmonella.

The product recall applies to the supermarket's own-brand chicken chargrills, which come in packs of two.

Affected packs weigh 170g and have a batch code of 31120953.

They also have a best before date of September 5, 2022.

Symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.

Asda said the products are being recalled because salmonella has been found in some packs, but it didn't confirm how many packs are affected.

Your product recall rights

PRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.

As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.

But it's often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.

If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.

When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you – the customer – to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don't there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.

If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.

They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.

In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full refund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.

You should not be charged for any recall work – such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.

The chicken chargrills are sold for 95p per pack at Asda.

Consumers are being warned not to eat the chicken and should instead return the packs to their nearest Asda store for a full refund.

Shoppers don't need to have the receipt to get the money back.

You can find your nearest Asda store by using its shop locator tool.

The supermarket said in the recall notice: "We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused."

It also recommended shoppers who would like more information to contact Asda's customer service on 0800 952 0101.

Other recent product recalls to look out for include breakfast cereal at Morrisons, which has been recalled due to fears it contains plastic.

While Birds Eye chicken burgers and Nestlé baby formula have also been recalled for the same reason.

Plus, Asda is recalling pasta ready meals for kids over concerns they contain pieces of blue rubber.
