Ferrero is co-operating with the NSW Food Authority on a possible link to a number of reported cases of salmonella in other markets.
“Although none of our Kinder products released to market have tested positive for salmonella, we are taking this extremely seriously as consumer care is our top priority,” the company said in a statement.
“As a precaution, we have taken the decision to recall selected seasonal products manufactured in Belgium.”
- Kinder Surprise Easter Basket (yellow foil wrapper) with Best Before Dates between 7 October and 20 November 2022.
- Kinder Mini Eggs Hazelnut 100g and Kinder Surprise Maxi 100g products with Best Before Dates between 23 August 2022 and 13 September 2022.
The Kinder Surprise 20g single and three-pack eggs in white, blue and pink varieties sold in Australia are manufactured in Italy and are not affected. All other Ferrero products, including other Kinder products, are not affected by this recall.
“We are working with retailers to ensure that these products are no longer available for purchase. If you have one of these products, you are advised not to consume it. Please keep the product and contact our consumer care team on 1800 627 231 or ConsumerCare.AUS@ferrero.com,” the company said.
