Products other than Telma's Cornflakes of Champions may have been infected with salmonella, including Cocoman cereals.

This morning, almost a week after the outbreak of the Unilever salmonella scare, in which Unilever concealed information from the public, and following media pressures, the company has published more information about Telma cereals handled on the packaging line in which the contamination was discovered. For the first time, the company announced that Cocoman cereals were also contaminated, and not Delipecan as previously announced.

The products are: 750g Cornflakes of Champions packages (production dates 26.6.16 to 27.06.16, machine code B), Badatz kosher cornflakes (production dates 23.06.26 and 27.06.16 to 29.06.16, machine code B) and 750g Cocoman shells (production dates 29.06.16 to 30.6.16, machine code B).

Telma's announcement says, "We again stress that all Telma products in the stores and in your homes are safe to eat. According to our company's strict procedures, every production batch is checked and put on hold. These products are not marketed until test results for this production series are returned, confirming that all is well. If any flaw is discovered, the batch is not marketed to stores, as was the case." Unilever added that on July, 31, the Ministry of Health conducted an inspection and checked company procedures.
