The salmonella storm in chocolate: A source in the Ministry of Health today (Monday) attacks the ministry’s conduct regarding the Salmona affair in Strauss-Elite. The source says that “it was a mistake to wait until the end of the holiday. Especially on days like this, the consumption of sweets is high and I would expect those responsible for the issue to publish a message as soon as there is suspicion.”
The source added that “I understand the desire to prevent panic, but I would rather be careful than make people sick. We need to find out exactly when the suspicion was discovered and understand why they hid it. This is about people’s health and we must not underestimate it.”
As mentioned, the food giant received indications that the salmonella bacterium was present in the raw material in the factory, which closed last Wednesday. However, the results were delayed because of the holiday and came only yesterday. At present, the Ministry of Health does not know of any casualties who consumed the company’s chocolate products.
Earlier today, Strauss announced that due to concerns about the salmonella bacterium in numbers of elite chocolate products, the products will be taken off the shelves. Among the many products in which there is concern – “quarter to seven”, “timeout”, “cow”, “blondie”, “until midnight”, “nuts”, “fun spoon”, “crisps”, and “energy”. The Ministry of Health was updated on the details, the factory was closed and the food company asked not to consume the products. Meanwhile, after the announcement, Strauss shares crashed on the stock exchange.
