Batches of some cheeses are being recalled from a creamery near Dumfries, after infectious bacteria was detected.

Food Standards Scotland has announced the recall from the Loch Arthur Creamery and Cafe.

It says Listeria Monocytogenes was detected in batches of Crannog and Killywhan cheese, and is recalling all batches as a precautionary measure.

The bacteria causes the infection listeriosis, which can cause fever, chills and other influenza-type symptoms, and in rare cases can have more serious life-threatening consequences.

Loch Arthur Creamery and Cafe is recalling all affected products from its customers and it has also sent a point of sale notice to all businesses that sell the products.

Consumers returning the products to where they were bought will receive a full refund.
