Salmonella scare sparks global baby milk recall

What to do when food is recalled

"As a precaution, it was chose to proceed to a broader recall of all products manufactured since February 15", he added.

French national news agency Agence France-Presse quoted a Lactilis spokesman as saying that "nearly 7,000 tonnes" (7,700 tons) of production may have been contaminated.

On Sunday, the French firm said it was "sincerely sorry" for the trouble caused and the sick babies and affected families.

In a statement, Orient EuroPharma said after the news broke in France it launched an investigation based on Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines and the report from Lactalis. However, the company's announcement was not enough to curb the risk of contamination.

French authorities have published a list of the baby formulas that can no longer be sold or exported.

Despite the claims, both Standard Foods and Multipower said they will unconditionally refund any products returned by consumers.

Heavy snow, high winds wreak havoc across Europe
Trains at the start of the working week will be busier than usual with passengers who postponed their journeys on Sunday. On Sunday, in high seas and strong winds a P&O ferry with several hundred passengers aboard ran aground near the port.

French authorities said the children have recovered.

French baby-milk maker Lactalis and health authorities have ordered a major worldwide product recall because of fears of salmonella contamination, following 26 cases of children falling sick in France.

All products made there since February 15 have been recalled, Nalet said, adding that the company was taking fresh precautionary measures of disinfecting all of its machinery at the factory.

A typical symptom of salmonella infection is diarrhoea.

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.

The Directorate-General for Competition, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control (DGCCRG) identified a link between the contaminations and the consumption of Lactalis' infant nutrition products. Salmonella symptoms are particularly risky for young babies and seniors due to the risk of dehydration, the AFP added.
