Several French supermarkets have apologised after baby milk powder is found to still be on sale.


A scandal has erupted in France after baby milk products which should have been removed back in December were found still to be on sale.

A number of supermarkets in France, including Carrefour, have removed the products over fears of contamination.

The baby milk powder was recalled last year after a number of children fell ill. But four supermarkets still had boxes for sale.

The products from the French dairy company Lactalis are feared to have been contaminated with salmonella.

Hospitals and pharmacies have also removed the baby milk. More than thirty babies fell ill after consuming the milk, although none died.

Spokespeople from the supermarkets and Lactalis have all apologised for the mistake.
