Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea, and abdominal cramping, and they can be life-threatening, especially in small children. So far 35 babies in France, one in Spain, and another in Greece have been reported to have contracted salmonella after consuming the formula. Food recalls are a serious business.
French dairy company has recalled more than 12 million boxes of baby formula in 83 countries over a potential risk of contamination with salmonella bacteria.
According to The Guardian, salmonella bacteria allegedly contaminated baby formula produced by the French dairy company Lactalis, which is the world's largest dairy company. So far the recall includes the company's Picot, Milumel, and Taranis brands of baby formula, and the recall affects 83 countries in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Africa. The company says the U.K. and U.S. are not affected by the recall.
