It has been previously reported that the Kinder factory in Belgium has been ordered to stop their chocolate manufacturing temporarily after having reports of getting children sick due to the contaminated chocolates. At least eight countries have reported various incidents of getting children sick after consumption of this particular chocolate. This is a very shocking incident as children are getting affected by the contaminated chocolates. Now, the kinder products have been recalled from retailers like Woolworth, Coles, and Kmart after noticing and getting several reports of salmonella poisoning in children due to the contamination in the chocolates.
It has been said that the chocolates are responsible for the outbreak of salmonella poisoning in nine countries by The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. In different countries, it has been found by different agencies that almost 142 people are affected by food poisoning. UK, Ireland, France, Germany, and Sweden have reported salmonella poisoning due to the consumption of contaminated chocolate. The most affected children are the age of 10 years and near about.
People are warned not to eat these chocolates. Food Standards Australia has updated its Kinder recall to include batches from further items that may have salmonella contamination.
