Salmonella: chocolates, chewing gum… watch out for these treats recalled throughout France

Several days after indicating a first recall of items from the Elite factory in Nof Hagalil for fear of salmonella contamination, the Strauss company decided to withdraw from the shelves all items designed in this manufacturing unit, extending which was already a massive recall. Update on the products concerned.

After the Kinder brand chocolates, 63 Elite/Strauss brand candies are currently the subject of a recall campaign across France. They are suspected of containing salmonella, the bacteria responsible for salmonella, a potentially fatal disease.

What products are affected by the recall?

The chewing gum brands concerned are those of the Must, Bazooka and Alma brands, and all Elite candies. They are added to chocolates like Para, Pesek Zman, Kif Kef and Taami bars, as well as energy bars, wafers, cookies and brownies made by Elite. A series of products that contain Elite chocolate, such as Milky chocolate chip puddings, rice cakes with chocolate and a wide range of Strauss ice creams have also been recalled out of caution.

Strauss said he made the decision to expand the recall to include chewing gum and candy “despite the fact that we currently have no indication that the products may cause concern.”

The exhaustive lists of the points of sale and the products concerned are online on the site rappelconso.gouv.fr.

What precautions should be taken?

People who have consumed these products and who have these symptoms are invited to consult their doctor and report this consumption. In the absence of symptoms within seven days after consumption of the products concerned, there is no need to worry and consult a doctor, details Rappel Conso.

For all these products, a refund campaign is launched until the end of June 2022. A customer number has been set up. It is 01 76 29 90 00.
