The Food Standards Agency is asking all retailers in Gedling borough to make sure they have removed Kinder products linked to an outbreak of salmonella from their shelves.
The products are believed to have caused a significant number of children to become seriously unwell, with many reported cases being admitted to hospital.
It is important that shops display a point of sale notice in a prominent location visible to consumers who visit the store with the correct information on the recalled items:
A suitable notice is available at The Food Standards Agency website: –https://www.food.gov.uk/news-alerts/alert/fsa-prin-25-2022-update-2
The following products are affected:
|Product details: Product names||Pack sizes||Best before dates|
|Kinder Surprise||20g||All dates up to and including 04 January 2023|
|Kinder Surprise||20g x 3 pack||All dates up to and including 04 January 2023|

An earlier recall only covered some of the products above, so it is important to check that the additional products that were included in the later, updated recall notices have been removed from sale.
The updated recall includes all Kinder products manufactured at their Arlon site in Belgium between June 2021 and the present date. Investigations have identified that some products included in the recall remain on sale.
The packaging of recalled products may not refer to the Belgium factory where they were produced and may include a different contact address, so it is extremely important that products are checked against the list in the recall notice to make sure customers are not being put at risk.
If you have bought one of the Kinder products as detailed above, do not eat it.
