ASDA has recalled some of its own-brand cereal bars over fears they could give someone salmonella.
The supermarket is pulling one batch of its £1.98 cranberry and nut bars “as a precautionary measure” just in case they contain the deadly bacteria.

Salmonella is a group of bacteria that can make you very ill with food poisoning.
Symptoms can include a fever, vomiting, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.
Asda said there is a “possible presence” of the bacteria in its four-packs of 35g cereal bars – which is why they’re no longer on sale.
The affected packs have a best before date of September 2019 and a barcode of “515717208672”.
Your product recall rightsPRODUCT 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 redund 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.
If you’ve bought these bars, don’t eat them.
You should return the pack to your nearest Asda store and the supermarket has promised to give you a refund.
You don’t need your receipt to return the packs.
Asda has put notices warning about the recall in stores and online.
The supermarket said in a statement: “We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused.”

Go Ahead recalled some of its cereal bars last week over fears they could trigger deadly allergic reactions.
Asda also issued a recall for packs of posh dauphinoise potatoes because some of them actually contain cauliflower cheese – and gluten.
Other recalls to look out for include Lidl’s hazelnut chocolate spread because the packaging doesn’t say that it contains nuts.
