Ferrero scandal grows: the yoghurt responsible for salmonella outbreaks

Europe has never experienced a food scandal of this magnitude. After an outbreak of salmonella at the Ferrero factory in Belgium, 119 cases have now been confirmed in Europe. Authorities have evidence that bacteria may be present in the yoghurt.

During inspections by the plant operator in Arlon, Belgium, salmonella typhimurium bacteria were discovered in a yoghurt tank as early as December 2021, the European Union health authority ECDC announced in its ongoing investigation.
