Tesco's Apricot, Almond & Yoghurt Bars

Tesco is recalling their Apricot, Almond & Yoghurt Bars due to a possible contamination with salmonella. This case seems to be linked with Asda's recalls earlier in the week, which has also been updated with an additional cereal bar recall. 

We suspect that both Tesco and Asda use the same producer - though this is a guess, we don't know!

Salmonella can be found in the guts of animals and humans, and thus can be in foods such as raw meat and poultry, unpasteurised dairy products and eggs.

That is obviously not the most obvious reason as to why these Apricot, Almond & Yoghurt Bars are contaminated - and the reason why is not given, so we don't know.

However, the contamination is just as real, whatever the cause, the symptoms are just the same and usually include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.
