HOLLAND & Barrett is recalling its range of sesame seeds amid salmonella fears.

The high street chain is recalling its Holland and Barrett Hulled Sesame Seeds because salmonella has been found in the product.

Salmonella infection usually causes diarrhoea, fever and stomach cramps. Symptoms can begin six hours to six days after infection and can last up to a week.

Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling the product detailing advice on what to do if they’ve bought the product.
