Ferrero Kinder Factory – hopes to reopen plant linked to Salmonella outbreak in June

Food Safety News

Ferrero’s confectionery plant in Belgium that has been linked to a large Salmonella outbreak could reopen next month.

Belgian authorities stopped production at the facility in Arlon in early April. Meetings have been held between Ferrero officials, a worker’s union and the Federal Agency For the Safety of the Food Chain (FASFC) on what conditions need to be met before production can resume.

Cleaning in the factory is ongoing and any restart is likely to require a test period before products are sent to market to ensure there is no contamination.
