Products in Turkey are not imported from the mentioned facilities.

WALL – After the news that the company closed some production sites due to the possibility of salmonella bacteria in Oreo biscuits, the manufacturer Mondelez made a statement and announced that “necessary measures were taken”. In the statement made by Mondelez International Turkey, it was stated that the safety of its consumers and the quality of its products are the company’s top priority.

According to AA, after a warning about salmonella contamination from its suppliers in June, the company took immediate measures in the statement: “As a precaution, a detailed control was carried out at the production facilities of Mondelez, where chocolate is supplied, and no situation that could harm health was found. However, none of the products arriving in Turkey are imported from the aforementioned production facilities. We are pleased to confirm that all Mondelez products on the market are safe, after all necessary checks have been made and follow-up measures have been taken.”

According to the news of Le Figaro, after Barry Callebaut, a Swiss-based cocoa and chocolate producer, warned Mondelez about the possibility of salmonella bacteria in its products, in order not to experience the same salmonella scandal that broke out with Ferrero’s Kinder products, Mondelez’s Oreo biscuits were produced in 3 large production sites. It was stated that some units were partially closed and some were completely closed.

In the news, it was stated that due to the slowdown in production, there was a supply shortage in the said biscuits in the markets. Food experts attribute the recent emergence of salmonella and similar bacteria in consumer products to the fact that manufacturers turn to cheap materials on the grounds that they are “more economical” and warn about this issue.

These companies had withdrawn most of their products from the market due to the presence of bacteria in Buitoni pizzas belonging to Nestle in France, Kinder chocolates belonging to the Ferrero group and cheeses belonging to the Lactalis group in many countries in Europe. The World Health Organization reported that there are 151 salmonella infections in the world associated with chocolate products. (NEWS CENTER)
