If you've bought minced beef or pork from ICA range since February 28th you should not eat the produce.

The supermarket chain has announced that 13 different products are affected by the scare.

These include mince from ICA's Basic and Import ranges which is sold in a variety of sizes and comes from Ireland, Sweden and Denmark.

The company said in a statement that it had taken the meat off shelves across the country after discovering salmonella during a routine check.

Salmonella can lead to diarrhoea, fever, stomach cramps and cause people to throw up. However most people affected recover without needing medical treatment.

Anyone who has bought mince from the store since the end of last month has been told to check the packaging against the company's list of affected items.

The batches of meat which are at risk of carrying salmonella are understood to have expiration dates of between March 6th and March 10th.

The ICA Group has almost 2000 stores across Sweden.
