Information – Lactalis restarts production but restriction on sales remains after Salmonella outbreak

Just Food

Dairy company Lactalis has had the all-clear from French authorities to restart full production of infant formula at its site in Craon, which was at the centre of a salmonella outbreak in December.

However, while production restarted at the plant located in the north-west of the country at the beginning of June, the firm’s products cannot yet be sold at this stage, a Lactalis spokesperson told just-food today (9 July), adding the company hopes to get full clearance from the authorities by the end of this month.

Once that is achieved, then the firm will issue a statement to the market, the spokesperson said.
