With Easter weekend just days away, a Canadian chocolate company is recalling even more of its products due to microbial contamination.
A further 13 products from Kinder brand chocolate have been added to the list of products that are being recalled due to possible salmonella contamination.
Originally, the Government of Canada issued notice of the recall of 10 Kinder chocolate products on Wednesday, Apr. 4, 2022. Ferrero Canada Ltd., the company that manufactures products under the ‘Kinder’ brand, triggered the recall itself, though there have been no reported illnesses associated with the recalled products in Canada, according to the Health Canada.
On Monday, Apr. 11, 2022, additional products, including advent calendars, more sizes of Kinder ‘mini eggs,’ and even more of the company’s most well-known product, ‘Kinder Surprise’ eggs, were added to the recall list.
“Do not consume the recalled product,” the Government of Canada said in its public notice of the expanded recall. “The recalled products have been sold nationally.”
