Apparently, five new cases of babies affected by salmonella were detected in the past week, belonging to the same strain (Salmonella agona) that caused the initial Salmonella alert, and has been traced to the PICOT rice-based baby formula, not included in the Dec 2, Salmonella-tainted brand recall list.

The company has taken precautionary measures to disinfect facilities at a plant in northwest France, believed to be the source of the salmonella contamination, company spokesman Michel Nalet told media.
