Ferrero International SA is recalling more of its Kinder chocolate eggs just before the Easter holidays, citing a link to salmonella outbreaks in a number of European countries.

The Italian candy maker announced on Thursday it had acquired data showing a genotype match between the salmonella cases reported across Europe and a Ferrero plant in Arlon, Belgium. The salmonella originated in a filter at the outlet of raw material tanks in mid-December, Ferrero said.
