Ferrero is now also removing Kinder products from US companies’ shelves

Chocolate maker Ferrero on Thursday evening asked US retailers to recall some Kinder chocolate due to possible salmonella contamination.

With Easter looming, this week the Italian company recalled Kinder chocolate that it has already sold in several European countries (France, Belgium, UK, Ireland, Sweden and the Netherlands). “There are currently no confirmed cases in the United States and no other children’s or Ferrero products have been affected by this recall,” the company said in a statement.

Ferrero also stated that there is cooperation with US health authorities on cases reported in Europe. In the European Union and the United Kingdom, 105 Salmonella infections have already been linked to eating Kinder Surprise and Schokobons.

The contaminated chocolate is manufactured in the Belgian factory in Arlon. According to the health authorities, the first case was discovered on January 7. The cause of the salmonella outbreak at the Ferrero factory in Arlon was the filtering of two tanks for raw materials. The contamination was discovered on December 15 at the Arlon plant.
