French supermarkets admit to selling salmonella contaminated Lactalis products after recall

French supermarkets admit to selling salmonella contaminated Lactalis products after recall

In a sign of how seriously France is taking the issue, Macron weighed in from Italy, also promising punishment for those responsible.

Speaking from a press conference in Rome, Macron hit out at dairy giant Lactalis after major supermarkets acknowledged this week that millions of baby food products recalled in December over fears of salmonella contamination still made it onto French shelves.

So far French officials have reported 35 cases of children getting salmonella poisoning from the contaminated milk powder, while one case has been reported in Spain and another is being investigated in Greece.

That health scare caused distrust in locally produced infant formula and benefited foreign suppliers such as Nestle, Danone and Lactalis.

The recall affected goods carrying the Picot, Milumel and Taranis brands destined for French and overseas markets and France's consumer protection agency DGCCRF has begun an investigation and carried out 2,500 checks so far.

French retailers sold baby milk after salmonella recall

The announcement came as economy minister Bruno Le Maire said Lactalis would have to extend its product recall to all milk products at the affected production site.

Lactalis, among the world's biggest dairy product producers, launched a global recall of its products made at its factory in Craon, northwest France, in December after discovering salmonella bacteria on site.

But even after that, the products were still available at supermarkets and other retailers in the country.

"We have to win back the trust of our customers", he said.

Desouches claimed the recall was complex and rejected the suggestion that Systéme U had taken too long to respond.
