Children’s chocolate: Ferrero has to shut down the entire factory
Due to cases of salmonella in many countries, the confectionery manufacturer Ferrero was forced to stop production at a factory in Belgium for the time being.
The Supervisory Authority of Afsca has announced that it will cancel the production license for the Arlon plant. Therefore all factory products must be withdrawn. The Belgian public prosecutor is now investigating the company.
Ferrero previously announced that salmonella had been detected in the factory since December 15, 2021. Salmonella was found in a sieve at the exit of two raw material tanks. Then the products made from it were discontinued. Filter has been replaced and controls increased on unfinished and finished products.
