Food Safety News

Laboratorios Ordesa S.A. has recalled rice milk formula made at a Spanish factory suspected to be the source of a Salmonella outbreak. Combined with the first two companies’ recalls, implicated baby formulas could have been sold in at least 18 countries via retailers and online sellers.

Company officials said only Blemil Plus hydrolyzed rice is affected. Multiple lots of Blemil Plus 1 rice 400 gram and Blemil Plus 2 rice 400 gram are part of the recall, according to the Spanish Agency for Consumer Affairs, Food Safety and Nutrition (AECOSAN).

Pharmacies with affected product lots have stopped selling them. Consumers are advised to return the recalled formula to the pharmacy.

Laboratorios Ordesa becomes the third company to issue a recall in relation to the outbreak.  Sodilac and Lactalis have already recalled baby formula products from the production plant in Spain.
