Kinder factory at center of Salmonella cases can reopen

Ferrero’s Belgian factory is authorized to restart Kinder chocolate production subject to strict testing

A factory in Belgium behind a Salmonella contamination in Kinder chocolates sold in Europe can reopen conditionally after a clean-up by owner Ferrero, health authorities said Friday.

Ferrero was forced to withdraw more than 3,000 tonnes of Kinder products worth tens of millions of euros after the Salmonella cases were traced to Kinder chocolates made in its Arlon factory.
