Recall Ferrero does not apply to children’s chocolates and children’s bars

The salmonella scandal in Ferrero has escalated in recent days. There is a big recall in many supermarkets in Germany, such as Netto, Edeka, Penny, Kaufland, Aldi, Lidl, Globus and Rewe. But this does not affect all Ferrero products on the shelves of food companies. 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.
