Batches of Kinder products were suspected of being linked to food poisoning in a number of European countries where consumers reported salmonella infections.

At least 134 cases of salmonella linked to a chocolate produced from a Belgium factory were reported in Europe.

The authority also checked shipments of Kinder products entering Abu Dhabi and confirmed that no suspected batches arrived in the local market.

The Abu Dhabi food authority said it is taking all measures to prevent “improper and unhealthy products” from entering the emirate’s markets.

In Dubai, the Dubai Municipality confirmed that there are no contaminated Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs in the market, and that the product has been recalled as a precautionary measure. ICA/Expat Media
