Food giants Aldi has extended a product recall for particular chicken products due to a risk of salmonella.

The company has contacted the Food Standards Agency to inform customers they should return Roosters Southern Fried Poppin’ Chicken and Roosters Breaded Poppin' Chicken due to the risk of severe illness.

The FSA says that all products should be returned to stores regardless of their batch bodes and best before dates.

An alert on the FSA website reads: "Aldi is extending its recall of Roosters Southern Fried Poppin’ Chicken and Roosters Breaded Poppin' Chicken to include all batches and all best before dates, because the products may contain salmonella."
