The now recalled products (there are many, with inviting names like Chicken Poppets and Roosters Breaded Poppin Chicken), have been available in many UK supermarkets. As one might predict, more than 200 children have been infected with Salmonella from such sources (and, now, is not a great time to have to go to hospital). People are advised to be very careful about the storage and cooking (it can vary from batch to batch) of such products. One death was formally linked to Salmonella in the recent outbreak.
