The bacteria kills hundreds of people in the U.S. every year. About 1 million cases of illness are caused by salmonella in food.



Europe's health agency is already investigating more than 100 possible cases of salmonella linked with eating chocolate.

Cases appear in several countries, including Belgium, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. There have been no reports of illness in the U.S.

Consumers who have purchased the affected product should not eat the product and may contact the Ferrero customer service line Monday - Friday 9am-6pm EST at 1-800-688-3552 or via https://www.ferreronorthamerica.com for product refund.
