HEALTH ALERT: More Kinder chocolates recalled over salmonella

Ferrero Australia has recalled more Kinder chocolates over fears of possible salmonella contamination.

Several popular Easter treats were pulled from supermarket shelves across the country last week, but Food Standards Australia has now broadened the list.

A total of eight Kinder chocolates have now been included in the updated recall notice issued overnight.
