Two organic food retailers have recalled a number of products after they were found to contain the potentially fatal salmonella bacteria.

Abel and Cole and Suma have both recalled packets of seed mix and sesame seeds after the bacteria was found in the sesame seeds used in the products.

Seed mix warning

Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps. Symptoms usually last for four to seven days and most people recover without treatment. However, some people can become seriously ill, requiring hospital treatment as the dehydration caused by the illness can be life-threatening.

The Abel and Cole packets were sold only online and buyers should have been contacted by email telling them what to do if they have bought them. Anyone who purchased any of the affected Suma products is being asked to return them to the store where they bought them.

The affected products are:
