Salmonella hazard at Ferrero: The Consumer Center warns against consuming “children” products. These include surprise eggs and chocolate beans.

Cologne – The Salmonella scandal at the Ferrero company, which resulted in a number of products, including those from Netto, Edeka, Penny, Kaufland, Aldi, Lidl, Globus and Rewe, being recalled, also occupies the Consumer Center. As a precautionary measure, this now advises not to consume any “kinder” products from Ferrero, such as surprise eggs, mini eggs or chocolate candies.

The reason: Consumers can not immediately look at the product, whether it is manufactured in the Belgian factory in Arlon, explains the Consumer Advice Center. The Arlon plant is responsible for the salmonella outbreak and thus also for the large Ferrero recall. But there was also good news: Baby chocolate is not affected by the salmonella outbreak.

Ferrero recall: Almost all “children” products affected – Consumer Advice Center criticizes

Nevertheless, the Consumer Advice Center criticizes Ferrero’s approach and, above all, communication. Also because it is not yet clear which other Ferrero products besides the “cheeks” range also pose a risk to salmonella. “Ferrero’s piecemeal information policy is unreasonable and irresponsible for consumers. Ferrero must now put all the information on the table and participate in the complete clarification of the case. It must be ensured that no other products are affected by a salmonella attack, «explains the consumer advice. The following Ferrero products have been recalled so far:

Ferrero recall: how do I know if a product is affected?

The EAN number can be used to determine exactly which Ferrero products are affected.

Salmonella scandal: About 150 diseases associated with Ferrero products are known

According to EU authorities, 119 cases of salmonella and 31 suspected cases have so far been linked to the consumption of products from the Belgian factory. So far, at least 150 customers who have purchased Ferrero products within the past few weeks and months could be directly affected by the salmonella scandal. The cause of the salmonella outbreak at the Ferrero plant in Belgium has not yet been fully clarified, but there is growing evidence that the bacteria could have been in buttermilk processed at the plant. Ferrero initially identified and removed a filter at the end of two buttermilk tanks as potentially dangerous for salmonella.

Ferrero recall of “friendlier” products – how do I know if I have salmonella?

According to consumer advice, salmonella disease appears within a few days of infection with diarrhea and abdominal pain. Occasionally, vomiting and mild fever may also occur. In healthy people, however, the symptoms usually go away on their own after a few days. However, anyone who develops persistent or severe symptoms should seek medical attention.
