Major malfunction in the recall procedures for Lactalis baby milk

Lactalis French retailers sold baby milk after salmonella recall

The government ordered the recall and a halt to the sale of the products last month.

Speaking on Thursday, President Emmanuel Macron promised necessary punishment for those involved. The health scare in China caused distrust in locally produced infant formula and benefited foreign suppliers such as Nestle, Danone and Lactalis.

French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire and Virginie Beaumeunier, head of the Competition Policy, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control Agency (DGCCRF), are reflected on a window as they arrive at a news conference about Lactalis baby milk contamination scandal at the Bercy Finance Ministry in Paris, France, January 11, 2018.

The Minister then called on the managers, "each of them, the manufacturers, the intermediaries, the distributors ... to shed light on the omissions found and to make sure that none of the products concerned in this case are in the market and in stores ".

Le Maire said initial checks showed recalled products had remained on sale at 91 sites in France, but there were no indications so far that potentially contaminated products had been exported.

'Snowflake' protest against Trump fizzles out
Stephanie Druley, senior vice president for events and studio programs for ESPN, which is broadcasting the game, told Ralph D. Jesse Jackson says the halftime song at the College Football Championship game should be "We Shall Overcome".

A number of supermarkets in France, including Carrefour, have removed the products over fears of contamination.

"This is a major malfunction in the process of recall by the managers, to whom responsibility lies", the minister said in the margins of a press conference that he presented for the presentation of the worldwide exhibition of agricultural products expected to be held by the end of February, every year, in Paris.

A spokesperson for Systéme U, which owns the chains Hyper U, Super U, Marché U and Utile, said all the retailers had "made mistakes". Earlier today, it announced that it was temporarily laying off 250 of the 327 staff employed at the site in Craon.

Hundreds of lawsuits have been filed against French dairy giant Lactalis by families who say their children got salmonella poisoning after drinking powdered milk made by the company, an association representing victims said Friday.
