Kinder products recall

Kinder products recall - an update from the Foods Standards Agency

Kinder egg product

We are asking all retailers 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.

Product details:

  • Kinder Surprise 20g. All dates up to and including 4 January 2023
  • Kinder Surprise 20g Three-pack. All dates up to and including 4 January 2023
  • Kinder Surprise 100g. All dates up to and including 21 August 2022
  • Kinder Mini eggs 75g. All dates up to and including 21 August 2022
  • Kinder Egg Hunt Kit 150g. All dates up to and including 21 August 2022
  • Kinder Schokobons 70g, 200g and 320g. All dates up to and including 4 January 2023

An earlier recall only covered some of the products above, so it is important to check you have removed from sale the additional products that were included in the later, updated recall notices. 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 you check products against the list in the recall notice (food.gov.uk) to make sure your customers are not being put at risk.
