Ferrero recalls certain Kinder chocolates from US over potential link with salmonella contamination
Italian confectionary group Ferrero has voluntarily recalled certain Kinder chocolates from U.S. shelves following a potential link with salmonella contamination.
According to the company, Kinder Happy Moments Chocolate Assortment and Kinder Mix Chocolate Treats basket are being recalled because they were manufactured in a facility where salmonella was detected.
The voluntary recall comes after Ferrero recalled its Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs from U.K. stores earlier this week. The affected chocolate was manufactured in Belgium and the recall may be extended to other countries.
Salmonella bacteria can cause serious and severe infections, especially in children or elderly people and others with weak immune systems.
