Girl, 3, 'lifeless' after eating Kinder chocolate

The news comes just a week after several Kinder chocolate products were recalled over salmonella fears.

The Kinder products affected by the recall were sold across Australia at Coles, Woolworths, Target, Kmart, Big W, independent food retailers including IGA and petrol stations, and online.

Countries including the UK, France, Germany and Belgium were also affected.

Charlotte Elizabeth Wingfield, a mum from the UK, has claimed her daughter was “lifeless” after eating a Kinder chocolate treat.

She detailed her daughter's condition on Facebook admitting the three-year-old looked "dead behind the eyes" after suspected salmonella poisoning.
