Supermarkets sold Lactalis infant formula despite recall due to Salmonella

Supermarkets sold Lactalis infant formula despite recall due to Salmonella

While the scandal's fallout is spreading, Lactalis remains the focus of anger.

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

President Macron said that "if punishment is required, then there will be punishment".

President Emmanuel Macron said he ordered ministers to meet with retailers including Carrefour SA and Casino Guichard Perrachon SA to discuss the failure to withdraw dairy company Lactalis SA's salmonella-infected baby food products from store shelves.

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

The group stopped all activities at the site on 8 December and 250 of the 327 workers are subject to partial unemployment measures since the start of this week. A further 2,500 checks will be carried out from next week. "The government has had to intervene with a company that was out of order and that has the sole responsibility for the quality and security of its products on the market".

It added three product recalls, on different lots, were launched on 2, 10 and 21 December.

"This is a serious matter and there has been unacceptable behavior that should be punished", Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said at a press conference earlier Thursday.

In its statement , El Salvador's government expressed its "rejection" of the comments attributed to Trump . White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a briefing that no deal had been reached.

Lactalis rejected criticism of its response, saying it had collaborated closely with the authorities.

Le Maire has summoned Lactalis for talks on Friday.

The company took internal recall procedures which led to the removal and destruction of more than 36,000 products but said the 52 products had "escaped the vigilance" of its teams.

Lactalis announced an extension to the recall less than two weeks later, confirming that contamination occurred at Craon during work in the first half of the year.

France is one of the major exporters of food, such as wine and dairy products.

"We made mistakes, as did all the big distribution companies", Systeme U spokesman Thierry Desouches told BFM TV, adding the recall had been complex.

He did not say what volume of baby milk could be involved, in addition to the more than 12 million tins of baby milk and food that Lactalis has already recalled.
