There is a big recall in Ferrero in Germany. Many chocolate products from the famous brand “Kinder” were affected. Now the explosive details come to light.

+++ 10.20 am: It appears Ferrero has been aware of the salmonella condition for some time. As Ferrero France explained, officials were already aware of the salmonella case at the plant in Arlon, Belgium, on December 15 last year. RUHR24 reports on this.

During the inspection, salmonella was detected in a sieve at the exit of two tanks for raw materials. Then the products made from it were discontinued and the filter replaced. Ferrero also stated that controls on finished and semi-finished products have been increased as a result.

Ferrero’s major call-up: Factory in Belgium must be closed

Update from April 11 9:11 am: Ferrero’s recall now has dire consequences for the company. Salmonella, which can be detected in many products, can be traced back to the factory in Arlon, Belgium. The authorities are now taking action there.

First report Tuesday (April 5) at 5:53 pm: Just before Easter, Ferrero recalls several products in Germany. Many chocolate snacks are influenced by the well-known “Kinder Chocolid”. The reason for the recall was the suspected presence of salmonella, which was initially proven abroad.

The affected products were manufactured at the Arlon factory in Belgium. There have previously been Ferrero recalls in Belgium and Great Britain. It was justified by “the number of salmonella outbreaks reported in various EU member states,” the responsible Belgian authority declared (more on recalls and warnings in RUHR24).

On Friday, Germany joined France and Sweden. Ferrero explained that the decision to withdraw Kinder Chocolid products was voluntary and as a precautionary measure. They are working closely with the responsible food authorities in Germany to uncover a possible link to a number of reported cases of salmonella.
