French retailers sold baby milk after salmonella recall

The move comes as the government seeks to contain reputational damage to France's strategic agri-business industry in overseas markets.
Carrefour, E.Leclerc, Auchan and Systéme U all continued to offer Lactalis babymilk after a recall had been issued last December. Over 30 children have fallen ill and the crisis deepened this week. Consumers in China, a fast-growing market for baby food and dairy products, are particularly sensitive to such scares after melamine-tainted baby milk led to the deaths of six children in 2008.
Privately-held Lactalis, which has annual sales of around 17 billion euros ($20 billion), addressed the salmonella contamination by halting operations at the factory where it started, and on Thursday announced the temporary layoff of 250 workers. A further 2,500 checks will be carried out from next week.
"We have to win back the trust of our customers", he said. "The state, on the 9th of December, stepped in for a company which failed in its actions and which, I re-emphasize, bears the sole responsibility for the quality and safety of the products on sale", he said.
Dairy giant Lactalis will extend a product recall to all baby food produced in its factory hit by a contamination scandal, French Minister of Economy Bruno Le Maire said on Friday.
