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. 

Norfolk Trading Standards said in a statement: "If you have bought any of the above products do not use them. Instead, return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.  

“When handling and serving raw pet food it is always advised to clean utensils and feeding bowls thoroughly after use. Consumers should wash hands thoroughly after handling raw pet food, bowls, utensils or after contact with the faeces of animals.  

“Raw pet food should be stored separately from any food (especially ready to eat foods). Care should be taken when defrosting to avoid cross contamination of foods and surfaces.”
