If you bought Kinder Surprise eggs recently, you might not want to eat them.
Initially Didn’t Recall Eggs in Singapore
On 4 April, news spread that Italian confectionery group Ferrero was recalling the Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs, which contain small collectable toys. After the eggs were found to have a link to dozens of salmonella cases, the company recalled the product in several European countries.
And no, salmonella has nothing to do with salmon. Consuming something contaminated with salmonella can cause food-borne illnesses like fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhoea.
A Ferrero spokesman in Singapore initially told The Straits Times on 5 April that Singapore isn’t involved in the recall. None of the Kinder products released in Singapore tested positive for salmonella.
However, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) said that affected products had been imported, and it has told the importer RedMart to recall them on Wednesday.
Best Before 11 July to 7 October 2022
Check your Kinder Surprise eggs, and if they have a best before date of between 11 July to 7 October 2022? You probably shouldn’t eat them.
Or, if you already ate them, you might want to go seek medical advice, just to make sure what you ate wasn’t contaminated. Other affected consumers may contact RedMart for other inquiries.
