Meanwhile, several Kinder products have been recalled after the chocolate was linked to over 100 cases of salmonella.
The factory behind the housings now had to close until Easter.
A total of 156 cases of monophasic Salmonella Typhimurium have been reported in 10 EU countries and the UK, the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) said.
Most of the patients were younger than 10 years. Many of those affected were hospitalized.
Symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps.
Most cases resolve within a few days, but in some cases, symptoms can be severe and result in hospitalization.
The Food Standards Agency in the UK said the Kinder eggs linked to the outbreak were all made at the same factory in Belgium.
After confirming that the factory would be closed, Belgian Agriculture Minister David Clarinval said: “Such a decision is never taken lightly, but the current circumstances make it necessary.
“The food security of our citizens must never be neglected.”
Customers who have purchased any of the recalled products are urged not to eat them.
Instead, contact Ferrero’s Consumer Helpline at Consumers.firstname.lastname@example.org or 0330 053 8943 in the UK.
Buyers will be offered a full refund, the chocolate maker said.
