Gateshead Council is reminding retailers to check their stock and ensure that all recalled Kinder chocolate products have been removed from sale.

Following an outbreak of salmonella cases, Ferrero has recalled a range of Kinder products manufactured since June - regardless of their best-before dates. This includes Kinder Surprise 30g and Kinder Surprise 100g, Kinder Mini Eggs and Kinder Schokobons. Full details of the affected products can be found in the latest product recall notice.

Anneliese Hutchinson, Service Director for Climate Change, Compliance, Planning and Transport, said: "Our Environmental Health team has been contacting a range of businesses and we're finding some relevant products in a number of small independent retailers.

We're reiterating the advice from the Food Standards Agency that all affected products should be removed from sale immediately and thankfully we've had full co-operation from retailers so far. We also have enforcement support officers continuing to make checks across the borough."

The Food Standards Agency is also asking members of the public to be vigilant and check the details shown in the product recall notice before consuming products that may be affected.

If you have any concerns about retailers in your area, please contact the Environmental Health team by emailing environmentalhealth@gateshead.gov.uk or calling 0191 433 3000.
