The reason is a suspected link with ongoing salmonella outbreaks in several European countries, as stated in the review in press release Wednesday.
See the list of items and stamp dates affected at the bottom of the article.
Sold all over the country
The raffle applies to Kinder Surprise, either singles or in packs of 3, Kinder Mini eggs, Kinder Surprise Maxi and Kinder Schokobons.
Consumers who have purchased products are encouraged to throw them away or return them to the store.
Products are sold across the country to large retail chains. It says in the press release that it may also have come in products for smaller independent grocery stores via parallel imports.
Also in many other countries, Kinder products are being pulled from the market because of the suspected presence of salmonella in many of their products.
One person injured in Norway
So far, 126 cases of infection have been detected in Europe, one of which was found in this country.
In Norway, an infection was detected in one person. Heidi Lange, a veterinarian and senior adviser at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, told TV 2 on Tuesday that the person had contracted the disease at the end of February and had contracted the same strain of monophasic Salmonella typhi that was detected in the UK outbreak.
“The National Institute of Public Health is closely following the situation and working closely with the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, which is now working on the traceability and is in dialogue with the manufacturer about the possibility of recalling relevant children’s chocolate products in Norway,” Lange said on Tuesday.
