“The products are being recalled because they were manufactured in a facility where Salmonella Typhimurium was detected,” FDA said. “While there are no reports of illness in the United States to date, Ferrero is voluntarily recalling the products out of an abundance of caution due to reported cases of Salmonella in consumers that consumed products in Europe that were manufactured at the same facility.”

If you purchased any Kinder chocolates that are affected by this recall, you should not eat them, discard them immediately and contact the Ferrero customer service line Monday – Friday 9am to 6pm EST at 1-800-688-3552.

This recall began on April 12, 2022.

How Does Salmonella Get Into Chocolate?

Believe it or not, chocolate is actually a fruit since it is a natural product that is derived from trees. Cocoa pods are harvested and crushed to extract the cocoa pulp and beans.

These beans and pulp are then dried outdoors, usually on the ground, and covered with banana leaves. The bean shells can then become tainted with animal feces, as wild animals can freely roam over them.

However, during the chocolate-making process, the beans are roasted over high heat, which should eliminate any bacteria present.

Another potential source of salmonella contamination in chocolate products is the use of harmful ingredients, such as expired or spoiled milk.
