Israel – Israel’s Strauss recalls chocolate after Salmonella found

Financial Post

Israeli foodmaker Strauss Group said on Monday it was recalling more than a dozen types of Elite brand chocolate after a routine inspection at its plant in northern Israel found traces of salmonella.

Strauss – a maker of snacks, fresh food and coffee with an Israeli market share of 12.4% – disclosed in a regulatory filing the discovery of the bacterium, which can cause intestinal disease.

Strauss recalled products made after Feb. 20 and the Nazareth-area plant has been shut to find the source of the problem, the company said, adding it was coordinating with Israel’s Health Ministry.

The products being recalled belonging to its “Elite” line of chocolate snacks include the popular Shokolad Para, Pesek Zman, Egozi and Kif Kef candy bars, Energy chocolate-coated crackers, and Bonbonniere candy boxes, among others. Strauss announced that the production of the various chocolate products in the factory was immediately halted and products manufactured in the vicinity of the discovery of salmonella were blocked from distribution.
