Girl 'dead behind the eyes' after catching salmonella from Kinder Egg – claims mum


Earlier in April, Ferrero SpA recalled products including Kinder Eggs after it emerged there were a number of salmonella cases linked to the products. Now, a Hull mum has shared on Facebook her daughter became ill after eating one of the treats.

Charlotte Wingfield shared photos of her child Brooklyn-Mai, whose temperature spiked to 39C because of the food poisoning.

Ms Wingfield said in her Facebook post that Brooklyn-Mai had never been so poorly in her life.

She said: “Brooklyn-Mai has been so so poorly since I picked her up from nursery on Monday.

“Seeing as I was so ill last week, I thought nothing of it than her just coming down with the tummy bug I had until she slept for 21 out of the following 24 hours and then kept falling asleep as she was doing things.”

In the Facebook post, Ms Wingfield continued: “Her temperature spiked to over 39° and I struggled to disturb her.

“I knew something wasn’t right and spoke to the GP who ran through a list of what it could be.

“I came off the phone thinking she had a viral bug.

“Fast forward three days and it’s been confirmed she has salmonella from the Kinder chocolate she ate on Sunday.”

Ferrero said it acknowledged “internal inefficiencies, creating delays in retrieving and sharing information in a timely manner” and said these had “impacted the speed and effectiveness of the investigations”.

The widening of the recall to include all Kinder products manufactured at the site between June and the present date was announced by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) on Friday night.

The previous recall only covered products with best-before dates up to October 7, 2022.

The FSA, still investigating an outbreak of salmonella cases linked to Kinder products, said the new update means all the products in the recall notice, no matter what the best-before date is, should not be eaten.

The recall is related to the same products – Kinder Surprise, Kinder Mini Eggs, Kinder Surprise 100g and Kinder Schokobons – announced earlier in the week.
