Lactalis recalls infant foods from Craon unit

LAVAL, December 21, 2017

France-based Lactalis Group, a multinational dairy products corporation, has recalled all infant and nutritional products manufactured and packed in Craon factory since February 15, 2017.

All other products manufactured in other factories are safe and are out of the scope of recall, a company statement said.

“We wish to extend our sincerest apologies to the affected families. We are well aware of the seriousness of the situation and fully understand the anxiety and inconvenience that have been caused,” the statement said.

Following the alert transmitted by French authorities on December 1, 2017 concerning a risk of salmonella contamination of infant formula, Lactalis Group proceeded on December 2, 2017 to a first withdrawal / recall of products.

Further investigations led to a second withdrawal / recall of all products manufactured since February 15, 2017 from one of the drying towers of the plant.

“Despite the conformity of all our analyzes carried out on the finished products in between  January 1, 2017 and December 1, 2017, we decided to stop Craon factory for a drastic and complete audit on December 8, 2017,” the statement added. – TradeArabia News Service
