French dairy group Lactalis will pay damages to families affected by a Salmonella contamination at one of its plants producing baby milk, the company's Chief Executive Emmanuel Besnier told the weekly Journal du Dimanche.Salmonella infections can be life-threatening and the families of three dozen children who have fallen sick in France as a result of the contaminated baby milk have announced a raft of lawsuits.Besnier did not say how much the damages might amount to.The recall involves up to 12 million tins of baby milk.Besnier has also been criticized for failing to speak out publicly during the salmonella scare.Lactalis has become an industry giant, with annual sales of 17 billion euros ($20.73 billion) and 18,900 employees across some 40 countries.
