The Health Ministry announces it is looking into suspected contamination on Tnuva’s production line for powdered milk, as part of a probe into a salmonella outbreak at a Strauss factory.

The ministry says the product is sold to producers who further process it and not marked directly to consumers. It adds that initial tests on goods that used the powdered milk have come back clean.

“We are working in full coordination with the Health Ministry and in accordance with its instructions,” Tnuva says in response.
