French prosecutors have opened an investigation into the cases of salmonella contamination in products made by Lactalis, the country’s dairy giant.

“The health division of Paris prosecutor’s office launched a preliminary probe for involuntary injuries, putting in danger the life of others and non-performance of recall procedure,” said Europe1, a local broadcaster.

Recently, DGCCRF, the country’s consumer protection agency, decided to halt the sale of several baby formula milk and baby food products made by Lactalis, and ordered an international recall of all these products after the discovery of salmonella bacteria.

Following 20 cases of salmonella infection of infants in France, the company, one of the world’s leading dairy producers, recalled nearly 7,000 tonne of packets produced by a contaminated factory in Craon, northwest France.

The salmonella agona bacteria is dangerous for the very young and the elderly, and provokes severe diarrhoea, stomach cramps and vomiting.
