Recall of Kinder Surprise chocolate from Belgium due to possible salmonella

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has issued a notification on the recall of some batches of Kinder Surprise chocolate from Belgium due to the possible presence of salmonella.

As the implicated products were imported into Singapore, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has directed the importer, RedMart Ltd, to recall the products.

The recall is ongoing, said SFA in a media release on Wednesday (Apr 6).

SFA added: "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."

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. For enquiries, they may contact RedMart.
