To Press Releases listSingapore,Feb 22, 2013

As a precautionary measure, Nestlé initiated a voluntary recall of four KIT KAT Chunky special varieties (48g size bars in Peanut Butter, Hazelnut, Chocolate Fudge and Caramel flavours) and KIT KAT Chunky Collection Giant Egg in the UK, Germany, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Malta, Austria, Singapore, Philippines and Canada.

The recall affects only the 48g size bars of the four special KIT KAT Chunky varieties listed above. No other KIT KAT product is affected.

Seven consumers in the UK have told us they found a piece of plastic in the product. So far, we have not received any other similar complaints, but to avoid any risk whatsoever to our consumers, we have decided to voluntarily recall the entire production of these four KIT KAT Chunky varieties and KIT KAT Chunky Collection Giant Egg manufactured from September 2012.

The affected products are predominantly sold in the UK, with small amounts also sold in Germany, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Malta, Austria, Singapore, Philippines and Canada. They are not sold by Nestlé in any other country.

A small amount of the KIT KAT Chunky Peanut Butter bar (Batch code 23410457H) is currently sold in Singapore. As a precaution, Nestlé Singapore is recalling all supplies of this affected product.

Nestlé Singapore imports KIT KAT Chunky Hazelnut (42g) which is not affected by this recall. We would like to assure our consumers that no other KIT KAT products are affected.

The safety and quality of our products are non-negotiable priorities for the company. We sincerely apologize to our consumers for any inconvenience caused by this voluntary recall.
