York retailers are being urged to take action over products linked to an outbreak of salmonella.
City of York Council is advising shopkeepers, including small independent and franchise retailers, to be aware of a product recall for certain Kinder products.
A number of young children have become unwell, with many reported cases being admitted to hospital.
Councillor Carol Runciman, executive member for health and adult social care, said: “We want to advise retailers, especially smaller independent and franchised food retailers, to be aware of the product recall and to ensure that the affected products have been withdrawn and removed from sale and to be clear that members of the public are encouraged to not to buy any of these products.”
The affected products include:
|Product name||Pack sizes||Best before dates|
|Kinder Surprise||20g||All dates up to and including 4 January 2023|
|Kinder Surprise||20g x 3 pack||All dates up to and including 4 January 2023|
|Kinder Surprise||100g||All dates up to and including 21 August 2022|
|Kinder Mini eggs||75g||All dates up to and including 21 August 2022|
|Kinder Egg Hunt Kit||150g||All dates up to and including 21 August 2022|
|Kinder Schokobons||70g, 200g and 320g||All dates up to and including 4 January 2023|
Businesses in the city should continue to display the point of sale notice in a prominent position that increases the likelihood of consumers seeing the recall.
Should further unsafe products be identified, further product recall information notices will be issued.
