Salmonella risk in Ferrero: Rewe recall not for baby chocolate and baby bars
The salmonella scandal in Ferrero has escalated in recent days. After many other supermarkets in Germany, such as Netto, Edeka, Penny, Kaufland, Aldi, Lidl or Globus, Rewe now also has a big recall. But this does not affect every Ferrero product that is on the shelves of the Cologne-based food company. Among other things, children’s chocolate and children’s bars are unaffected, a Ferrero spokeswoman explained when asked by 24RHEIN. “Children’s chocolate and bars are not made in the Arlon factory,” the spokeswoman said. Only the Belgian plant is affected by an outbreak of salmonella. So there is no risk with other “baby” products.
