13.2kg. This is the amount of chocolate consumed by each French household, every year, according to figures from the Syndicat du chocolat. This quantity seems high and illustrates well the love of the French for cocoa.
However, this high consumption can sometimes harm consumers when products are subject to a recall procedure. This was particularly the case a few months ago, when many Kinder brand products were recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination. This case had then caused a lot of ink to flow and had not failed to worry households, usually fond of these chocolates.

Here are the products concerned as well as the references:
These products must therefore not be consumed but returned to the store to obtain a refund.
Here is the list of supermarkets where the potentially dangerous cookies were marketed.
