Delivery of raw lecithin from Hungary is the basis for the salmonella contamination in Barry Kalebo in Wiese, the FASFC reports.
The cause of salmonella contamination has been identified at the Barry Callebaut chocolate factory in Wieze. The company said Tuesday that one batch of contaminated lecithin, a raw material, is the source of the outside contamination. This amount comes from a product from Hungary, which was learned from the Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FAVV).
“Based on an internal investigation, and confirmed by test results from external and independent laboratories, Barry Callebaut has determined that one batch of contaminated lecithin, which is the source of salmonella contamination, entered our Wieze plant via third-party transportation and came from Cornell Warlop of the lecithin manufacturer.
The company does not convey the names of companies, it still appears. But at FASFC it looks like a product from Hungary. The FASFC had previously sent a warning via the RASFF Warning System (Food and Feed Rapid Alert System, editor)spokeswoman Helen Ponty said.
