The recall is for a 200g pack of Lidl Alesto California salted roasted pistachios.
A note from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) says: “Symptoms caused by salmonella bacteria typically include fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps.”
Packages of affected pistachios are best priced before October 4, 2022.
Anyone who has purchased one of the packages can return it to the Lidl store for a full refund.
Customers do not need a receipt to receive a refund.
Lidl will put up signs in the stores to explain the problem.
A Lidl spokesperson said: “Lidl GB looks forward to apologizing for any inconvenience caused.”
This year, Lidl also recalled a batch of its Deluxe 240g stuffed dates – also because of salmonella bacteria in some packages.
2022 has seen several other supermarkets recall their products due to salmonella contamination.
