According to the official website of the United Nations on the 27th, Salmonella outbreaks related to chocolate products produced in Belgium have recently occurred in many European and American countries. These chocolates have been sold to at least 113 countries and regions, including China. The World Health Organization (WHO) said Wednesday that 11 major European countries have now reported salmonella food poisoning linked to the best-selling Kinder chocolate product produced in Belgium. From Belgium to the United States, there are more than 150 suspected cases of Salmonella.
The WHO states that salmonellosis is characterized by acute fever, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Symptoms usually begin 6 to 72 hours after ingestion of food or water contaminated with Salmonella, and illness can last 2 to 7 days. Children under the age of 10 are the most affected, accounting for about 89% of cases, and available data suggest that nine patients were hospitalized. No one has died so far. (Zhongxin Finance)
