Worldwide Baby Formula Recall
A baby formula company is recalling products because of possible salmonella contamination. Officials in France report that over two dozen infants were made sick this month. The recall is worldwide, and there are hundreds of products included. Almost seven-thousand tons of formula made by Lactalis may be contaminated around the world. The recall does not directly affect American consumers. Here is the list of affected products.
According to Reuters,
The recall includes products for export, including to China, Taiwan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Morocco, Lebanon, Sudan, Romania, Serbia, Georgia, Greece, Haiti, Colombia and Peru.
Some were also destined for regional markets, including Africa and Asia...
Lactalis spokesman Michel Nalet said on BFM Television that the products can be exchanged in pharmacies or supermarkets. He said that any salmonella bacteria would be killed by boiling the milk for two minutes.
