France's Lactalis forced into new recall in baby milk scare

Lactalis

France's consumer protection agency ordered a halt to sales of products from the site. "There has been unacceptable behavior which should be punished", Le Maire told a news conference.

In a sign of how seriously France is taking the issue, Macron weighed in from Italy, also promising punishment for those responsible.

Some 18 babies were hospitalized late past year over the contaminated products, though they all recovered.

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

On Thursday, a spokesman for Lactalis, Michel Nalet, apologised once again to parents, adding that the firm was working "in ideal collaboration" with French officials to contain the outbreak.

Lactalis - whose Picot, Milumel and Taranis brands were affected by the recall - has stopped operations at a factory in northwestern France in order to try and eliminate the risk to the public.

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

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

Le Maire has summoned Lactalis for talks on Friday.

In December it received three recall messages from Lactalis concerning infant nutrition products.

Carrefour, E.Leclerc, Auchan, Cora, Casino and Système U are among retailers that said items that should have been withdrawn from shelves had been sold.

The announcement came as economy minister Bruno Le Maire said Lactalis would have to extend its product recall to all milk products at the affected production site.

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

Meanwhile, Leclerc is known to have sold nearly 1,000 of the affected 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.
