The Federal Food Agency (FAVV) is calling for five Ferrero brand products to be suspended. These include Kinder Surpise and Kinder Mini Eggs. These chocolate products are very popular, especially now that Easter is approaching. But it is linked to the salmonella outbreak in Europe.


Relates to the following products produced at Ferrero in Arlon: Kinder Surprise 20g and 3x20g with an expiration date between 07/11/22 and 7/10/22, Kinder Surprise Maxi with an expiration date between 10/08/22 and 10/ 09/22, Schoko-Bons with an expiration date between 10/08/22 and 10/09/22 and Kinder Mini Eggs with an expiration date between 10/08/22 and 10/09/22. We urge consumers who own these products not to consume the products.

These products are popular with young children. As Easter approaches, the FASFC is asking parents and educators to check if they have these products in their possession and, if so, to ensure they are not consumed.

According to Helen Ponty, a spokeswoman for the FASFC, there are outbreaks in six countries. The countries involved were not disclosed.

Fever, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea

The FASFC says there are currently no confirmed cases linked to the outbreak in Belgium. “There are actually quite a few suspicious cases,” Ponte says. “But it is not yet certain whether it can be linked to these products. Analyzes are now being done with Sciensano.”

Reuters news agency reported that in the UK, 63 cases of salmonella have already been linked to chocolate products. This mainly concerns children under the age of five.

Salmonellosis is a common infection that in most cases heals without treatment. In some cases, salmonellosis can become more serious. In case of severe symptoms, you should consult a doctor who can start treatment. Possible symptoms of salmonellosis are fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea within 6 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food. Helen Ponty says that young children, pregnant women, people with poor resistance, and the elderly are more likely to develop symptoms.
