FSSAI warns against sale and consumption of contaminated infant milk formula manufactured by Lactalis,France
The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), has issued an order warning businesses and consumers against the sale and consumption of contaminated infant formula milk with Salmonella on receiving an alert from the International Food Safety Authorities Network (INFOSAN) .The formula has been manufactured by Lactalis Group in France.
Most persons infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12–72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Although most people recover without treatment, severe infections may occur. Infants, elderly persons, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely than others to develop severe illness. When severe infection occurs, Salmonella may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and then to other body sites, and can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics.
