Health Ministry denies Lactalis’ salmonella-contaminated baby products

Egypt is not among the countries from which French dairy group Lactalis has recalled its baby milk product, Celia, due to salmonella contamination, the Health Ministry announced yesterday, Youm7 reports. The Consumer Protection Agency (CPA) had met earlier yesterday with producers and importers of Lactalis products to confirm that Celia is not sold in Egypt, CPA head Atef Yacoub tells Al Mal. As we noted yesterday, the CPA has been investigating Lactalis’ domestic partner, Lactis-Halawa, for allegations it has sold contaminated dairy products. Yacoub had confirmed that the investigation is not connected to the salmonella contamination.
