INDIANAPOLIS — Two Kinder chocolate products are being recalled after reported Salmonella cases in Europe.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the recall involves Happy Moments Chocolate Assortment and Kinder Mix Chocolate Treats Basket. The products are being recalled because they were manufactured in a facility where Salmonella typhimurium was detected.
This is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with the organism often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
While no reported cases have happened in the United States in connection with the products, the company decided to recall the products out of an abundance of caution. The recalled products include:
