With Easter looming, this week the Italian company recalled Kinder chocolate that it has already sold in several European countries (France, Belgium, UK, Ireland, Sweden and the Netherlands).

“There are currently no confirmed cases in the United States and neither Kinder nor Ferrero products have been affected by this recall,” the company said in a statement. It also indicates cooperation with US health authorities on reported cases in Europe.

In the European Union and the United Kingdom, 105 Salmonella infections have already been linked to eating Kinder Surprise and Schokobons.

The contaminated chocolate is manufactured in a Belgian factory in Arlon. According to the health authorities, the first case was discovered on January 7. The cause of the salmonella outbreak at the Ferrero factory in Arlon was the filtering of two tanks for raw materials. Contamination was discovered at the site on December 15.
