newsonline - Two sandwich makers supplying UK supermarkets have recalled products because of an E.coli risk, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said.

It's a precautionary step a week after the UK Health Security Agency said an outbreak had forced some people into hospital.

Products from Boots, Asda, Tesco, Co-op, Aldi, Sainsbury's and Amazon are part of the recall.

Asda and Tesco stressed it was a precaution and said shoppers could return the products for a refund.

Greencore and Samworth Brothers Manton Wood are the companies that supplied the products.

It's understood other manufacturers will issue their own recalls in the coming hours.

The FSA said it had narrowed the source "to a small number of salad leaf products that have been used in sandwiches, wraps, subs and rolls".

Symptoms include "severe and sometimes bloody diarrhoea, stomach cramps, vomiting and fever", said Trish Mannes from the UKHSA.

However, some cases can cause serous complications that can lead to kidney failure.

People are being advised to follow NHS.uk guidance if they become unwell.

"Washing your hands with soap and warm water and using disinfectants to clean surfaces will help stop any further spread of infection," said Ms Mannes.

People who might be infected also shouldn't prepare food for others and avoid work or school until 48 hours after symptoms stop.

The UKHSA said cases had nearly doubled in the last week, with a further 98 bringing the total to 211.

Numbers are expected to rise as testing continues for more cases of the Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC).

Based on 160 cases, 42% of people have needed hospital treatment, the UKHSA added.

Last week, it said cases were linked to a "nationally distributed food item" but didn't give further details.

E.coli bacteria are normally harmless and live in the intestines of humans and animals. However some strains, like STEC, can make people very ill.
