    If you love Indian food and often get yourself a batch of Yaadgaar Rasmalai, you need to be careful.

    Earlier this week the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) announced that all of the milky desserts by this producer are being recalled due to the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

    According to the FSAI’s website, food businesses are requested to remove the affected product from sale and clearly display a point-of-sale notice informing customers not to eat the product.

    How to know if your Yaadgaar Rasmalai may be affected?

    Yaadgaar Rasmalai is produced in the UK. If you recently bought a batch with a best-before date up to and including January 1st, 2020, it’s best to get rid of it.

    Symptoms to be on the lookout for:

    If there’s a chance you might have eaten the affected batches, symptoms can start to show on average three weeks after eating an infected meal, but this can range between three and 70 days.

    Be on the lookout for the following symptoms:

    • Vomiting
    • Nausea
    • Persistent fever
    • Muscle aches
    • Severe headaches
    • Neck stiffness

    “In rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications, such as meningitis,” the FSAI warns.

    “Some people are more vulnerable to Listeria monocytogenes infections, including pregnant women, babies and people with weakened immune systems, including the elderly.”

    If you experience any of these symptoms, be sure to see your doctor as soon as possible.
