Recently, Kinderjoy had not been seen on Kenyan supermarkets.
Recently, the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) has cleared popular kids’ chocolate, Kinder Joy, as safe for consumption.
It had been out for contamination reports.
However, KEBS has releaved concerns that kinderjoy consumption which was withdrawn from most markets after the European Food Safety Authority observed about 134 Salmonella cases especially among children, was harmful.
On the other hand, European countries had elucidated that the bacteria contained in the Kinder Joy was causing fever, nausea, diarrhoea, cramping, and vomiting among children.
Nonetheless, tests done by KEBS have suggested that Kinder Joy products imported into the country are safe for consumption.
Bernard Njiraini, the KEBS Managing Director started that there is no evidence of the bacteria in Kenyan products.
“The Kinder variants sold locally are sourced from Italy and India, as the countries of origin, not Belgium. Belgium is the country that has been identified as the source of the contaminated variants,” Njiraini stated.
