Ready-to-eat meals enjoyed by gym junkies have been recalled for a second time this week after 15 people were struck down with salmonella. 

CORE Powerfoods recalled several of their frozen meals on Tuesday after they issued a warning to Australians on October 19. 

But on Tuesday the NSW Food authority updated the best before dates of affected products and made the second recall. 

Affected products have Best Before markings from 05/03/2020 to 4/10/2020.

Customers have been warned not to eat the product amid fears the meals could be contaminated with Salmonella Weltevreden and may cause illness. 

The Core Powerfoods products being recalled are the 310 or 350g varieties of: Going Nuts, Deep South Chilli, Muay Thai Meatballs, Holy Meatballs, Naked Chicken, Seismic Chicken, Old School, and Smokey Mountain Meatballs.  

A total of 10 people have been struck down with salmonella in NSW alone, making it the worst affected state. 

Customers have been urged to return the products for a refund.  

Dr Fay Jenkins of SA Health said: ‘While this particular type of salmonella is unusual, any kind of salmonella poses serious health risks and symptoms of infection can begin anywhere between six and 72 hours after exposure and last for three to seven days.’    

Spokesman Jeremy McAnulty warned that people may have to be taken to hospital to manage dehydration from severe salmonellosis.

Young babies, elderly people and those with weakened immune systems are most at risk, he said in a release on NSW Health’s website.

‘Salmonellosis symptoms include fever, headache, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting,’ Dr McAnulty said.

‘Symptoms … usually last for four to seven days, but can continue for much longer.

‘It is important that people do not prepare food for others while they are unwell with salmonellosis and as a precaution for 48 hours after symptoms have passed.’
