Israel – After Recall in April Over Salmonella Concerns, Elite Chocolate Brands Return to Shelves in Israel


Israel’s top chocolate manufacturer announced on Tuesday that it is reintroducing several lines of candy to the Israeli market following a nationwide recall earlier this year due to salmonella contamination.

In a statement, the Strauss Group said that products from its Elite chocolate line, including the Parra brand, Pesek Zman and Kif Kef candy bars, would “gradually return to the shelves.” The move follows the reopening of its factory in Nof Hagalil in Israel’s north, where the salmonella was discovered. The company said that it has made “significant investments … to ensure the quality and safety of the products at the highest level.”
