Salmonella fear in Woolies product

The fear of salmonella contamination has prompted Woolworths to recall its coleslaw.

The Woolworths Coleslaw 110g, 250g, 400g and 800g plastic tubs have been available at supermarkets and metro stores in NSW and the ACT, as well as some stores in regional Victoria.

Affected tubs have use by dates from January 12 to January 21.

The NSW Food Authority warns products with potential microbial contamination may cause illness if consumed.

"Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund," the authority said on Tuesday.

"Woolworths takes product safety seriously and apologises for any inconvenience caused by this recall," the company said.
