Ferrero withdraws in Spain as a precaution some specific batches of Kinder manufactured in Belgium

Ferrero Ibérica has announced that, voluntarily and as a precaution, it has ordered the withdrawal of some batches of Kinder products manufactured in Belgium from the Spanish market, after some cases of salmonella have been registered in Northern Europe, according to Europa Press reports.

In this way, the batches withdrawn from the market are the Kinder Surprise Egg Cup of six Christmas edition units with Christmas drawings on the pack, with an expiration date of 04/20/2022, the Kinder Schokobons (all formats), Kinder Surprise Maxi and Kinder Happy Moments, all with an expiration date between 05/26/2022 and 08/21/2022.

The multinational has specified that the rest of the Kinder Surprise eggs of any format, the Kinder Big Surprise, as well as all the rest of the Kinder brands are not affected by the withdrawal.

Ferrero Ibérica has taken the decision to voluntarily withdraw some batches of the aforementioned products from the Spanish market as a precaution, despite the fact that no presence of salmonella has been detected in the analyzes carried out on any Kinder product.

The firm is cooperating with the local health authorities to withdraw the products as quickly as possible. Thus, it is in contact with the establishments where the affected products are marketed to proceed with their immediate withdrawal.

Ferrero has advised people who have purchased the affected products not to consume them and to contact the consumer care team.
