People who have bought Cadbury's desserts in Suffolk have been warned not to eat them for fear they might contain Listeria moncytogenes.
Müller UK is recalling Cadbury daily milk cheesecake and Cadbury dairy milk caramel cheesecake dessert products as a precaution.
Symptoms caused by the bacteria can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea.
In rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications, such as meningitis.
Some people are more vulnerable to these infections and should seek advice from the 111 immediately if they have any symptoms.
These people include those over 65 years old, pregnant women and their unborn babies, children less than four weeks old and those with weakened immune systems.
The products affected are:
- Cadbury's Dairy Milk cheesecakes 2 x 85g - use by date of June 5, 6, and 11 2019.
- Cadbury's Dairy Milk Caramel cheesecakes 2 x 85g - use by date of June, 5, 6 and 11 2019.
