Salmonella bacteria have been found at world’s biggest chocolate factory and this has forced it to cease functioning.
The firm supplies chocolate products to multinational customers including Hershey, Mondelez, Nestle and Unilever.
However, the firm is run by Swiss giant Barry Callebaut in the Belgian town of Wieze, producing liquid chocolate in wholesale batches for 73 clients.
However, according go the company’s spokes person, the company said that any customer who might have received contaminated chocolates would be contacted.
Spokesman Korneel Warlop said: ‘All products manufactured since the test have been blocked.
‘Chocolate production in Wieze remains suspended until further notice.’
Recently, families in the UK were told to throw out any Kinder Eggs they had at home due to salmonella risk.
