In France, seven children in hopsital after eating cheese infected by E.coli
French authorities have collected cheese coming from the Alps which is infected with E.coli.
This was after seven French children, aged between 18 months and 3 years, were admitted to hospital after consuming this cheese.
The children all suffered serious complications to their kidneys, except for one child who did not require more treatment.
An order was therefore issued by the public health authorities to recall all Reblochon cheese coming from a factory in the French Alps from the shelves as a precaution, an operation which involves 320 tonnes of cheese produced by this firm between the end of January to date. It is still not known how much infected cheese there is still on the market.
The authorities are warning parents not to give this cheese made from non-pasteurized milk, to their children.
