More Kinder products are being recalled due to a link with an outbreak of Salmonella, after some of the brand's chocolate eggs were recalled at the weekend.

The food poisoning outbreak is affecting Ireland, the UK and several other European countries.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) said there have been 10 cases of food poisoning linked to the chocolate, a number of which have involved young children.

All of the children have fully recovered, the FSAI said.

The Irish cases have involved the same strain of Salmonella that has been detected in the UK.

The products being recalled are Kinder Mini Eggs 75g, Kinder Egg Hunt Kit 150g, Kinder Surprise 100g, and Kinder Schokobons 200g - all with best before dates between 20 April 2022 and 21 August 2022.

On Saturday, there was a recall of Kinder Surprise 20g eggs and Kinder Surprise 20g three-packs of eggs, with best before dates between 11 July 2022 and 7 October 2022.

Dr Pamela Byrne, Chief Executive of the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, has warned consumers not to eat the affected products.

"Ferrero has now extended its list of products that are being recalled. If anyone has any of the affected products at home, we are advising them not to eat them.

"We know that many of these Kinder products are popular at this time of year with Easter approaching. We urge consumers to check at home if they have any of the products and if they do, to ensure that they are not eaten," said Dr Byrne.

"There are ten cases of Salmonella food poisoning in Ireland linked to this outbreak. The most common symptom of Salmonella food poisoning is diarrhoea, which can sometimes be bloody. Other symptoms may include fever, headache and abdominal cramps."

The FSAI said it continues to liaise with the Department of Health, and is also working closely with the Health Protection Surveillance Centre of the HSE, as well as the relevant agencies in the UK and Europe.

An investigation is ongoing.
