Chocolate may have poisoned more than 40

The Guardian

By Jeevan Vasagar

Half a million bars of Cadbury's chocolate suspected of being contaminated with salmonella have been eaten by the public over the past six months, the company admitted yesterday as it took seven of its most popular brands off the shelves.
There are concerns that the contaminated bars may have triggered food poisoning among more than 40 people.
The Food Standards Agency accused Cadbury of failing to alert the agency after a leaking waste water pipe at a chocolate factory contaminated the "milk chocolate crumb" which is blended with fillings to make Cadbury's sweets, including the Dairy Milk Turkish bar, the Dairy Milk Buttons Easter egg and the Freddo bar.
