Anvisa bans chocolate brand
Anvisa (National Health Surveillance Agency) is responsible for strengthening the protection of the health of the population, through health surveillance of the production and consumption of products and services subject to health control. It should be noted that the examination can be performed in different environments.
Whenever an error is found, Anvisa has the power to apply a series of restrictions on the trademark, and can also ban the use of the product, and request that its sale be prevented. This time, for example, we will talk about the ban involving a chocolate brand.
The company in question had sent products to Brazil that may have been contaminated with potentially deadly bacteria. The case occurred in April 2022, when Anvisa banned the import of Kinder brand product from Belgium to Brazil, and the reason raised eyebrows.
The presence of Salmonella has been found in some chocolate produced in the European factory. At the time, Kinder spoke out, saying it was not importing the white 46g Kinder Schoko-Bons into Brazil. However, one company imported this infected product independently.
