0

PARSIPPANY, NJ, April 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Ferrero UNITED STATESInc. of Parsippany, New Jersey is voluntarily recalling its Kinder® Happy Moments Chocolate Assortment and Kinder® Mix Chocolate Candy Basket from the marketplace due to possible Salmonella Typhimurium. Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the frail or elderly, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with Salmonella often present with fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare cases, infection with Salmonella can cause the organism to enter the bloodstream and cause more serious diseases such as arterial infections (ie infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The products are being recalled because they were manufactured in a facility where Salmonella typhimurium has been detected. Although there are no reports of illness in United States to date, Ferrero is voluntarily recalling products out of an abundance of caution due to reported cases of Salmonella among consumers who consumed products in Europe which were manufactured in the same factory.

No other Kinder products manufactured for the US market are included in this recall.

Consumers who purchased the affected product should not eat the product and can contact Ferrero Customer Service Monday through Friday. 9am-6pm EST at 1-800-688-3552 or via https://www.ferreronorthamerica.com/contact-US-residents for product refund.

Ferrero deeply regrets this situation. We take food safety very seriously and every action we have taken has been guided by our commitment to consumer care. We will continue to work cooperatively with the Food and Drug Administration to resolve this issue.
