After Kinder Eggs were recalled in Great Britain and Ireland due to a series of salmonella cases, a similar action was taken in Italy: Ferrero actually decided to recall some batches of Kinder Schoko-Bons, which are not eggs but milk chocolate bonbons, produced by the same Belgian factory from which they came out. Eggs now banned from the British Isles. However, there is no problem for Kinder eggs distributed in Italy: the very popular milk chocolate eggs, which have a small surprise for whisking, are actually made in production centers other than those in Belgium.
Today the multinational confectionery company from Alba, Piedmont, issued this note: “With reference to the precautionary and voluntary recall, recently adopted by the Ferrero Group in the United Kingdom and other European countries, of certain specific Kinder production groups made at the factory in Arlon (Belgium), Ferrero has decided to arranging, also in Italy, in agreement with the national health authorities, a reserve recall of specific production batches of Kinder Schoko-Bons, coming from the same factory. All other Ferrero products, including Kinder products for Easter and all attributes of the celebration of Easter are not affected by the recall ” .
But in the case of eggs being pulled from British and Irish store and supermarket shelves, “at least 63 cases of product-related illnesses have been identified – according to the UK Food Safety Agency, the UK Food Safety Authority – most of them affected… children under 5”. Eggs affected by the recall procedure are of two types, “Kinder Surprise Eggs” in single and multiple packs, and have a deadline between July 11 and October 7, 2022: They, along with Kinder Schoko-Bons collected in Italy, are manufactured at the Arlon factory.
