Customers have been urged to check their products at home, as a third announcement has been released in connection to the Salmonella outbreak.
Further Kinder products have been recalled due to a link with the salmonella outbreak, by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland [FSAI].
This product recall is the third instance from the FSAI, on April 2, the FSAI recalled all 20g eggs and three-packs of Kinder Surprise eggs with a best before date between 11 July and 7 October 2022.
On April 5, the recall was extended to Kinder mini eggs, Kinder egg hunt kit, Kinder surprise, Kinder schokobons with a best before date of April 20 and August 21, alongside Kinder surprises with best before dates July 11 and October 7.
Today the recall has been extended to include other Kinder products due to a link with an ongoing food poisoning outbreak of salmonella.
The April 6 recall has been recalled to Kinder Surprise 20g and 20g x 3 with best before dates up to and including the 7 of October 2022, and Kinder mini eggs, Kinder Egg Hunt Kit, Kinder Surprise and Kinder schokobons with best before dates between April 20 and August 21.
The most common symptom of salmonella food poisoning is diarrhoea, which can sometimes be bloody. Other symptoms may include fever, headache and abdominal cramps.
The FSAI is warning consumers who may have the recalled products at home not to eat them, the organisation have said that point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.
Those that have been infected by Salmonella have typically developed symptoms between 12 and 36 hours after infection, but this can range between 6 and 72 hours.
The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Diarrhoea can occasionally be severe enough to require hospital admission. The FSAI have said that the elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have more severe illness.
