SINGAPORE, April 12 (Xinhua) — The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has further extended the recall of four Belgium-imported Kinder chocolate products on Salmonella concerns, the authority said in a press release on Tuesday.

The move follows a new recall alert issued by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland due to the possible presence of Salmonella, said the SFA.

Among the four products, the recall of three products, namely Kinder Surprise Maxi, Kinder Mini Eggs and Kinder Egg Hunt Kit, will be further widened to all batches and shelf dates, just a few days after the SFA announced recall of certain batches on April 8.

Meanwhile, the SFA has added into the list a new product named Kinder Schokobons, with all batches and dates of such products to be recalled.

This is the third time for SFA to expand the scale of recalled products over the past week and five Kinder products have been recalled so far.

SFA has directed five importers to recall the implicated products. It also suggests consumers who have consumed the implicated products and have concerns about their health should seek medical advice.

Salmonella is a pathogenic bacterium that can cause foodborne illnesses including fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhoea. Enditem
