Ministry of Climate Change and Environment recalls Kinder Surprise Uovo Maxi Chocolate from UAE Market

Following the outbreak of salmonella in several European countries, linked to the consumption of Kinder chocolate products, the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) has issued a decision to recall Kinder Surprise Uovo Maxi Chocolate 100 g from the UAE market.

The Ministry listed the two batches related to the incident and their expiry date in a circular issued to local food control authorities to ensure prompt removal of the affected products from retail outlets and destroying or returning them to the country of origin as needed.

The decision aligns with MOCCAE’s strategy to ensure the safety of inbound and traded food products in the UAE, as per international best practices to boost consumer confidence.

The National Rapid Alert System for Food revealed that out of the wide range of Kinder products manufactured in eight factories and sold in the UAE, only two batches of Kinder Surprise Uovo Maxi Chocolate 100 gm sourced from one factory in Belgium are affected. However, the Ministry will enforce tighter control measures on other products from Ferrero, the manufacturer of Kinder, that are traded in the UAE. The System is run by MOCCAE in coordination with local food safety entities, including Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority (ADAFSA) and municipal authorities in Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah, and Fujairah.

Ferrero exports its products to over 160 countries, and this incident is the first of its kind for the company.
