  1. I haven't tried this new flavor yet. Buti naman at nainform agad ang mga tao for the defects sa new product.

  2. whoa! that's good to know. it's scary to hear stories like this. but it's great that the company voluntarily recalled the products.

  3. Oh no, that's very alarming sis. To those who love kitkat, watch out!

  4. Oh, that's scary. I haven't heard of that news here in Canada though, but I still buy Kitkat, I love the Mint flavor! Haven't tried that one.

  5. It's a good thing that Nestle voluntarily recalled the said products so as not to pose any more danger to consumers. Accidents happen even in the strictest process that is why it is important that corrective measures are done swiftly.

  6. Great job by Nestle to pull out the product mentioned. Though, the company suffers much in terms of profit but they are more concern with the consumers safety. Kudos to Nestle.

  7. Worse could happen on manufacturing companies. So better watch what we eat... :)

  8. Thanks for the info, Len. I so love Kitkat. It's a good thing that the company did a voluntary recall.

  9. At least Nestle Philippines voluntary pulled out the products from the market without waiting for complaints. That is the safest thing to do to protect the consumers and so is the product's brand name.

  10. my kids love kitkat, we've tried the chunky but not this variant.
    thanks for the info on this.
    i wonder what will the company do to compensate for the return products?

  11. I love KitKat but only eat the regular ones :-) I have not see that kind of KitKat yet and I do not think will buy it as two of my family members have peanut allergies :-(

  12. Better be safe than sorry! This is a good announcement especially for KitKat lovers! Like me! :D

  13. nice that they did voluntary recall...that only shows how they value their customers! anyway, i love kitkat but i never had this flavour yet...maybe when its back on the markey, i will try! thanks for sharing about this recall...:)
