Baby food scandal hits France

French retailers sold baby milk after salmonella recall

France has found that baby food products recalled over fears of salmonella contamination still made their way to store shelves.

Carrefour, E.Leclerc, Auchan and Systéme U all continued to offer Lactalis baby milk after a recall had been issued last December.

French President Emmanuel Macron's government is scrambling to save face after the alarming failure of a mass recall of baby milk prompted by a salmonella scare.

"There has been unacceptable behavior, which should be punished", he told a news conference. The recall also risks damaging Lactalis in China, a fast-growing market for baby food and dairy products.

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

France's consumer protection agency ordered a halt to sales of products from the site.

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

Le Maire fired harsh criticism against Lactalis before the press conference, calling it a "failing company". On Thursday, Lactalis announced the temporary lay off of 250 workers.

The recall included products aimed for export to some 30 countries, including to China, and overall represented more than 12 million baby food tins in what Nalet said was the biggest recall Lactalis had ever experienced.

The initial recall only concerned products made since February 2017.

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

A judicial investigation is taking place in France over the contamination and a group of French parents of affected infants said on Friday that they were considering a joint lawsuit.
