(AbsoluteNews.com) – On April 12, Ferrero U.S.A., Inc. issued a voluntary recall notice for some of its most popular chocolate candies. The company was concerned about the possibility the treats could give people a nasty bacterial infection. The recall comes just as parents around the country are preparing Easter baskets for their kids.
The company recalled Kinder Crispy Wafers Assortment and Happy Moments Milk Chocolate sold in a 14.1-ounce square box dated July 18, 2022. Also recalled is the Kinder Mix Chocolate Treats Basket sold in a 5.3-ounce cardboard basket with an expiration date of July 30, 2022. According to the company, the chocolates were manufactured in a facility where Salmonella was detected. Although there are no reports of illness, the company thought it would be best to play it safe.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause serious infections in the elderly, children, and people who have weakened immune systems. Symptoms usually develop 12 to 72 hours after exposure and include diarrhea, cramps, and fever. Most people recover in four to seven days, but in rare cases, the infection can result in death.
People who purchased the candy should reach out to the store where they bought it or the manufacturer to get a refund.
