Nestlé South Africa announces voluntary recall of a limited number of KIT KAT products due to the potential presence of glass pieces

As a precaution, Nestlé South Africa is initiating a voluntary recall of a limited number of KIT KAT milk chocolate products due to the possibility that they may contain glass pieces.

To date, we have not received any complaints or reported injuries. We are taking this action out of an abundance of caution having discovered the presence of small pieces of glass during our quality and safety checks.

The affected products were produced over a limited period and this voluntary recall covers only products with specific production codes that you can find on the label.

The quality and safety of our products are the top priority for our company. We understand that people will be concerned and apologize unreservedly to them. We regret very much any inconvenience caused by this recall.

We are working closely with the National Department of Health – Food Control Directorate and will continue to cooperate with them fully on this voluntary recall.
