French food safety inspectors failed to detect salmonella contamination at a Lactalis dairy plant, three months before the company carried out a major recall of baby milk in countries including Lebanon, a report said Wednesday.The alarm was followed by an order from French authorities to recall several million baby milk products from dozens of countries including Lebanon, and halt the sale and export of several products made at the Craon plant after Feb. 14 .On Dec. 21, Lactalis complied with orders from French authorities and issued the recalls, blaming the contamination on renovation work, although the plant has been at a standstill since Dec. 8 .
