Lactalis recalls baby milk after salmonella contamination

The recall will affect consumers in countries including China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Britain and Sudan, underlining the company's global reach.

Products in the United States are not affected.

In view of this latest development, French Health authorities have asked parents to check any Lactalis baby formula brands they may have purchased with the specific product lots that have been identified for recalling and to avoid using them.

Company spokesman Michel Nalet told French news site AFP almost 7,000t of production may have been contaminated, but was unable to say how much still remained on the market, had been consumed or was in stock.

Then hospital care will be necessary because the dehydration caused by the illness can be life-threatening.

Baby milk boxes have been removed from shelves in a drugstore in Anglet southwestern France Monday Dec.11 2017. Baby milk maker Lactalis and French authorities have ordered a global recall of millions of products over fears of salmonella bacteria cont
Baby Formula Recalled Worldwide After Fears of Salmonella Contamination

Lactalis said in a statement that the 26 cases of infection were linked to products branded Picot SL, Pepti Junior 1, Milumel Bio 1 and Picot Riz.

"We've chose to take this measure because salmonella contamination was detected at a production location in France where one of the ingredients is made", said Kruidvat, based in the central Dutch town of Renswoude.

The company believes the salmonella outbreak can be traced to an evaporation tower - used to dry out the milk - at a factory in the town of Craon in northwest France.

Disinfection and cleaning measures have been put in place at the suspected site in western France.

The recall follows the salmonella infection of 20 infants in France this month, followed by identification of a salmonella agona bacterial infection of five more infants this week. The company ordered a first recall that has been extended to more products at the request of French authorities following new cases of infections. Its American subsidiary, Lactalis American Group, produces a number of popular cheese brands, including Président, Sorrento, Precious, Rondelé, and Galbani.
