A range of raw pastry products sold in major supermarkets are being urgently recalled due to health and safety concerns.

The ready to roll pastry products and pizza doughs from Aldi, Asda, Pizza Express, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons are all affected, with customers offered a full refund for the products.

The products were found to contain the presence of Salmonella, which can cause severe food poisoning, by the Food Standards Agency.

Symptoms caused by salmonella typically include fever, diarrhoea, and abdominal cramps.

Trading Standards has advised that anyone who has bought a recalled product should refrain from eating it and instead return it to the store it was purchased from for a full refund.
