Because of salmonella... 3000 tons of "Kinder" products were withdrawn from the French market

Ferrero France President Nicholas Nikoff announced that more than 3,000 tons of Kinder products had been withdrawn from the market due to salmonella concerns, causing tens of millions of euros in losses.

In an interview with the French newspaper le parizien, Nikoff explained that the contamination came "from a filter located in a container of dairy butter in a factory in Arlon, Belgium."

He added that "the pollution may be caused by humans or raw materials," adding that "this crisis is catastrophic. It is the largest removal of products in the past twenty years."

He expressed the hope that the plant would be operating again after its closure, with 50% of the health and safety checks being conducted by an accredited "external laboratory" in the future, rather than the previous system of internal reviews only.

He stressed that the company "requested to reopen, starting from the 13th of next June, to re-launch production as soon as possible."
