Retailers in Powys are being urged by the county council to make sure they have removed Kinder products linked to an outbreak of salmonella from their shelves.

Last month, chocolate manufacture Ferrero recalled several Kinder products following an outbreak of salmonella.

The products are believed to have cause a significant number of children to become seriously unwell, with many reported cases being admitted to hospital.

Now Powys County Council’s Environmental Health Team are urging retailers across the county to make sure they have removed the products that have been recalled. They are:

Consumers in the county who may have purchased these products are also being urged by the council not to eat them as they may pose a risk to their health.

Gwilym Davies, the council’s Head of Property, Planning and Public Protection, said: "The possible presence of salmonella in these products pose a risk to people’s health if consumed.

"We are asking all retailers to make sure they have removed these Kinder products from their shelves so that they are not putting their customers at risk."

Anybody who have bought these products should not eat them. Instead, they should contact the Ferrero consumer careline on [email protected] or 0330 053 8943 UK or +44 (0)330 053 8943 Ireland to obtain a full refund.
