Romania is not on the list for supplies of special nutritional foodstuff (baby milk powder) contaminated with Salmonella Enterica, the Sanitary-veterinary Authority (ANSVSA) has informed on Tuesday.
“The National Sanitary-Veterinary and Food Safety Authority has received a fresh notification through the fast alert system, by which the National Contact System Point in France has officially informed that Romania is not on the list for supplying nutritional foodstuff (baby powder milk) contaminated with Salmonella Enterica,” an ANSVSA release on Tuesday informs.
On Monday, Romanian Agriculture Minister Petre Daea said Romania hasn’t received any official notification regarding the recall of baby milk produced by Lactalis and that the fast alert system would have sent information if problems have appeared and in several minutes the entire Europe would have known the developments.
French baby milk formula maker Lactalis has ordered on Sunday a global product recall over fears of salmonella contamination. Health authorities in France said 26 infants in the country have become sick since early December.
The recall affects products and exports to countries including Britain, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sudan. It covers hundreds of baby milk powder products marketed globally under the Milumel, Picot and Celi brands.
