A spokesman for the Food Standards Agency said: “Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause illness in humans and animals.

"The products could therefore carry a potential risk, because of the presence of salmonella, either through direct handling of the product, or indirectly, for example from pet feeding bowls, utensils or contact with the faeces of animals.

“In humans, symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps. Infected animals may not necessarily display signs of illness, but symptoms can include diarrhoea.”

Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that have sold these products explaining what to do.

It added: “If you have bought any of the above products do not use them. Instead contact Sneyd’s Wonderfeeds for further advice.”
