Netherlands – Dutch retailer issues recall after Ferrero chocolate error – Salmonella

Food Safety News

A Dutch retailer has issued a recall after mistakenly sending Ferrero chocolate potentially contaminated with Salmonella to market.

Jumbo is recalling Ferrero Kinder Schokobons 300 grams with an expiry date of Oct. 5, 2022 or earlier.

These products were recalled by Ferrero in April this year in relation to a multi-country monophasic Salmonella Typhimurium outbreak. However, Jumbo said some chocolate had recently been delivered to a limited number of stores.

The retailer added that as soon as the error became known, all stock was removed from stores as a precaution.

Jumbo asked customers not to consume the affected Ferrero Kinder Schokobons and to return them to one of its stores.

Official figures show the Netherlands had three cases related to the outbreak that affected more than 450 people from December 2021 to June 2022.
