Kinder product recall

ACTION REQUIRED BY RETAILERS following the issue of a product recall information notice on 2 April about some Kinder products which are related to an outbreak of Salmonella typhimurium.

The Food Standards Agency has reason to believe that the affected product is still being sold in small independent and franchise retailers. In light of the seriousness of the foodborne outbreak, with a number of young children becoming seriously unwell and many reported cases being admitted to hospital, we have written to businesses to make them aware of the product recall and to ensure all retailers have removed Kinder products linked to an outbreak of salmonella from their shelves.    

Retailers are required to check their stock and remove from sale any affected products immediately and continue to display the point of sale notices in a prominent position to enable consumers to see the recall. The affected products must not be sold, or consumed.  The packaging of recalled products may not refer to the Belgium factory where they were produced and may include a different contact address, so it is extremely important that you check products against the list in the customer notice.

Ferrero has also extended its precautionary recall of a selection of European labelled Kinder products manufactured at the Arlon factory in Belgium, that might be contaminated with Salmonella. Investigations have found that some products intended for the European market only which have already been recalled by Ferrero in Europe, have been imported into the UK by UK importers not linked to Ferrero.

The recall includes:
