A receipt is not needed.
The Food Standards Agency added that no other Kania brand products are affected by this recall.
The affected batches for the sea salt have the code: 9032AA, 9032BA, 9032CA, 9032CB, 9033AB, 9033AC.

In a recall notice issued on the Food Standards Agency website, the retailer said: "Lidl GB wishes to apologise for any inconvenience caused."

PRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.
As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.
But it's often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.
If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.
When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you – the customer – to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don't there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.
If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.
They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.
In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full redund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.
You should not be charged for any recall work – such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.
Customers who have any concerns can call the the retailer's customer services on 03704441234.
Earlier this week, we reported how the budget store was also recalling Mister Choc Choco & Caramel Bars because they could be potentially dangerous if you have a nut allergy.
Other recalls to look out for include Iceland's Takeaway garlic bread that could trigger allergies thanks to a labelling error.
