Just more than one week before Easter, Ferrero Canada Ltd. is recalling certain Kinder brand chocolate products from store shelves due to possible Salmonella contamination.

The recalled products have been sold nationally, meaning people in Misissauga, Brampton and the Hamilton area are potentially affected. Health Canada states taht recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the location where they were purchased.

Anyone who thinks they have become sick from consuming a recalled product, should call your doctor

“Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick,” the federal government advises. “Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.”

In all, 10 Kinder-branded products have been recalled. A list has been provided with the products identified by size, universal price code (UPC) and best-before dates:
