What to do to avoid new food scandals in food? On 30 March, public health in France confirmed what was suspected for two weeks: dozens of serious infections with the bacterium. Escherichia coli are associated with the consumption of Buitoni frozen pizzas which have been contaminated. Two children died.
Calendar option: a second pollution incident occurred at the same time. Dozens of people, mostly children, contracted salmonellosis after eating Kinder chocolates. On 8 April, the Belgian Food Safety Agency closed the Ferrero plant in Arlon (Luxembourg province), which produced Kinder products.
Behind all this pollution, we often find the same culprits. E.coli, salmonella, listeria. The bacteria that cause these serious poisonings are well known; however, these food health scandals regularly appear in the news. How to explain it? What controls are in place to avoid them? What really happened at Nestlé’s Caudry (Nord) plant, which produced Buitoni pizzas?
Mathilde Gerard, a journalist from the Planet Service The worldreturns to this episode of the show “L’Heure du Monde” about this case.
The episode was produced by Jeanne Bozek, directed by Quentin Teno and directed by Jean Guanty Santi.
