PARIS (AP) — French President Emmanuel Macron deflected blame Thursday in the latest chapter of a dairy scandal that has embarrassed the French government, major supermarkets and a dairy giant. Speaking from a press conference in Rome, Macron hit out at dairy giant Lactalis after major supermarkets acknowledged this week that millions of baby food products recalled in December over fears of salmonella contamination still made it onto French shelves. Calling Lactalis' practices "unacceptable," Macron said that "food security of all French and European citizens is a priority that must be guaranteed at the highest levels."
