The largest French retail group, E.Leclerc, acknowledged Tuesday that it had sold some Lactalis products affected by the December 21 recall in some of its stores.
Despite the application of this recall measure following the discovery of a salmonella contamination, „it appears that 984 products were still sold after the recall in several stores,“ said in a statement the distributor, without locating the points concerned.
E.Leclerc explains that it found the problem after carrying out „an internal audit to verify the correct application of the Lactalis company’s product withdrawal measures“ following a problem identified in the E.Leclerc store of Seclin (North of France).
The E.Leclerc centers carry out „an audit of the procedures in order to precisely identify the reasons for this dysfunction and to put in place the necessary corrective measures“, adds the group, which says to have informed „the competent administration“.

On December 21, Lactalis recalled all of its milk and other infant products produced at its plant in Craon (Mayenne) since February 2017 after the discovery of salmonella contamination.
A first recall of certain batches of infant milks was decreed on December 2, and the government announced a massive withdrawal of products from the Craon plant on December 10.
The bacterium causing the salmonella contamination of the Lactalis plant in Craon (Mayenne) is probably the same as that which hit the site in 2005, said Monday the Institut Pasteur.
