Lidl US has recalled its 8.4 oz Favorina branded Advent Calendar, i.e., Premium Chocolate with a Creamy Filling, citing potential Salmonella contamination, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
The products were available for sale at Lidl stores between October 12, 2022 and December 5, 2022. They will have a BEST IF USED BY year of 2023, and barcode number of 4056489516965.
The recall was initiated after the company, during routine testing, found that some items may be contaminated with Salmonella.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. The symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
Infection with Salmonella could also result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.
However, Lidl US has received no reports or complaints of illness related to this product to date.
Lidl, which operates more than 12,000 stores worldwide, said its US unit has removed the affected products from shelves.
Customers who have purchased this product are urged to immediately return it to their nearest Lidl store for a full refund.
In similar recalls, Comercializadora PepsiCo S. de R.L. de C.V. in early November called back certain Gamesa Arcoiris Marshmallow Cookies due to the potential presence of Salmonella.
