Pastry and dough maker BakeAway has recalled several raw pastry products due to the presence of salmonella, according to the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

The FSA advises that point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores selling these products explaining to customers why the products are being recalled and what to do if they have bought any of them.
“Following routine testing, we identified salmonella in two batches of a raw material used to produce several of our products,” a statement from BakeAway said. “The products produced from that batch of raw material are subject to a product recall.”
The statement added: “All of our products are cooked before consumption, in accordance with the instructions on the packaging. Once cooked, these products are completely safe to consume.
“However, we take the safety and quality of our products incredibly seriously and as a precautionary measure, we are asking customers not to consume any of the products listed and affected products should be returned to the store where they were purchased and a full refund, without proof of purchase, will be provided.”
Salmonella bacteria, which can be carried by eggs, causes food poisoning. Symptoms typically include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.
