Belgium – Product Recall: Several Kinder chocolates – Salmonella


04/22/2022 (Product Recall Update 04/08/2022)
Product Recall: Several Kinder chocolates.
Problem: Possible presence of Salmonella.

FERRERO RECALLS THAT KINDER SCHOKOBONS SHOULD NOT BE CONSUMED. REGARDLESS OF THE EXPIRY DATE , LOT NUMBER OR PACKAGING SIZE Ferrero wishes to draw attention to the possible presence, albeit small and unlikely, of Kinder Schokobons of different sizes than those usually present

on the Belgian market, because they would be imported from foreign markets. These products, also produced in the Arlon factory, should not be consumed.

Kinder Schokobons and Kinder Happy Moments, all formats combined, were withdrawn from the market on April 8th. Since then, Ferrero and the distributors have made every effort to ensure that the products withdrawn from the market no longer circulate and are no longer available for sale, under the control of the FASFC.

However, it seems that certain formats of Schokobons, usually not distributed in Belgium, are present in minute quantities on the market and this, following import practices, not controlled by Ferrero Belgium.

The full product list is below.
