Kinder Mix Chocolate Treat Basket Recall
April 8, 2022
Ferrero U.S.A., Inc. of Parsippany, New Jersey is recalling its Kinder ® Mix Chocolate Treats basket, because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella Typhimurium. Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
The product is being recalled because it was manufactured in a facility where Salmonella typhimurium was detected. While there are no reports of illness in the United States to date, Ferrero is voluntarily recalling the product 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.
No other Kinder products produced for the U.S. market are included in this recall.
Upon returning any below listed product to your local Big Y, you will receive a full refund.
The following products are sold at Big Y:
