More Recalls of Kinder Surprise Products & Here’s Why It’s a Big Deal


In an updated media release on 13 April, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has announced that another importer of Kinder products from Belgium has been directed to recall the possibly implicated products.

The problem with the products?

Possible salmonella.

It sounds worse the word looks—and no, it’s not a combination of salmon and nutella, ew—since Salmonella is a pathogenic bacterium that can cause foodborne illnesses such as fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhoea.

All in all, not a fun illness to get.

Never have I been more grateful for my cheap palate for M&Ms and that 8-loop knockoff chocolate from the Mamak store before, because Kinder products may look cute and all, but they are expensive.

The Implicated Products

Thus far, there are 4 Kinder products that have been recalled.


Namely the Kinder Surprise Maxi (100g), Kinder Egg Hunt Kit (150g), Kinder Mini Eggs (75G), and Kinder Schokobons, regardless of its pack size.

The difference between the earlier recalls is that it has changed from products of a specific date range to all batches and all best before dates.

The recall was initially started by Italian confectionery group Ferrero 4 April, since they found that there might be a correlation between the Kinder products and the dozens of reported cases of salmonella in Britain.

For food companies and their reputation, it’s always better to be safe than sorry; losing some profit in lieu of preserving their reputation is a respectable and far-sighted choice.

Hence, the importers RedMart, Le Petit Depot,  Kaimay Trading, Heinemann Asia-Pacific, Focus Network Agencies, and Walluco have been directed to recall the imports for the consumers’ safety.

How The Recall Has Affected Singapore

As such, the SFA has ordered Cold Storage Singapore to recall Kinder Maxi (100g) that were manufactured in Belgium, plus its Kinder Mini Eggs.

The SFA advises the customers who have consumed the implicated products and have concerns about their health to seek medical advice if necessary.

Consumers may also contact their point of purchase and importers for enquiries.

Most importantly, don’t eat the products you have in your stash, no matter how tasty and round it might look.

The collectible toys inside should be fine though.

SFA reports that the recalls are still ongoing.
