Kinder products linked to a salmonella outbreak in Belgium have been found on store shelves across Scotland, according to Food Standards Scotland (FSS).

Consumers have been warned to stay on the lookout for these products, after investigations by the standards body found they were still on sale across the country.

The products are linked to an ongoing Salmonella and were recalled by Ferrero in early April. A number of cases in the UK have involved small children.

Stuart McAdam, FSS Head of Incidents, said: “Investigations have found that some products previously recalled remain on retailer shelves.

Imported into the UK

“In addition, products intended for the European market only, that have been recalled by Ferrero in Europe, have been subsequently imported into the UK by UK importers not linked to Ferrero.

Ferrero extended its precautionary recall of Kinder products manufactured at its Arlon factory in Belgium to include confectionery originally intended for the European market only.

Investigations found that some of these products that had already been recalled by the manufacturer in Europe had been imported into the UK by companies not linked to Ferrero.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) noted that this latest update was in addition to its previous recall update and did not replace it.

European products

New products on this recall included: Kinder Maxi Mix Peluche 133g; Kinder Niespdzianka Maxi Lei 100g; Ferrero Kinder Mix Geschenktüte 193g; and Kinder Surprise Geant Gar. A full list can be found in the box below.

“While FSS continues to work closely with Local Authorities and Public Health Scotland, I would urge any small business owner to double check their stock to ensure recalled product isn’t available for sale,” ​McAdam added.

The packaging of the products in the original recall​ do not refer to the Belgium factory where they were made and may include a different contact address. Consumers were advised to not eat any of the affected products and instead to contact Ferrero directly to obtain a full refund.
