As reported by Liz Alderman in The New York Times:
The French dairy brand “Lactalis” recalled 7,000 tons of its products, including infant formulas due to potential Salmonella contamination. These recalls began this past December, however the company had found traces of the bacteria in their powdered milk products as far back as August. This recall affects over 80 countries across the world and as such, has garnered criticism for not only the company, but for France as well as the pitfalls of the European Union’s single-market distribution.
