3 more Kinder products recalled due to possible salmonella

Another three Kinder products have been recalled by the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) due to the possible presence of salmonella.

This comes after the recall of some batches of Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs.

SFA said on April 8 that it has extended the recall to three more Kinder products following a recall alert issued by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) due to possible presence of salmonella.

Salmonella is a pathogenic bacterium that should not be present in ready-to-eat food. It can cause foodborne illnesses including fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhoea.

The affected products are Kinder Mini Eggs (75g), Kinder Egg Hunt Kit (150g) and Kinder Surprise Maxi (100g). All are from Belgium.

"We have directed the importers, Redmart Ltd and Le Petit Depot Pte. Ltd., to recall the products," SFA added.

Consumers who have purchased the implicated products are advised not to consume it. Those who have consumed the implicated products and have concerns about their health should seek medical advice. They may contact the importers for enquiries.
