Days after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency recalled several types of Kinder-brand chocolates over the possible risk of salmonella contamination, more of the company’s candy are being added to the list.
The updated list includes advent calendars, assorted chocolates, mini eggs, and Easter treats.
The CFIA said online the recall was triggered by Ferrero Canada Ltd., and the recalled products have been sold nationally.
If you believe you became sick from consuming a recalled product, the CFIA is advising you to contact your doctor.
The agency is now telling Canadians to check if you have the recalled products in your home, and to not consume the chocolate and candy, to instead throw the treats out or return them to the store you purchased them.

“Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick,” the CFIA said online, “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.”

The CFIA said there have not been any reported illnesses related to the recalled Kinder-brand chocolates in the country.
It adds it is conducting a food safety investigation, which could lead to the recall of more products, in which the public would be notified.
