Laval, France - French police raided the headquarters of dairy giant Lactalis on Wednesday in a salmonella scare that has sickened dozens of children and led to a major international recall.

An AFP reporter on the scene at Lactalis' offices in Laval, western France, saw investigators entering the building.

A source close to the probe said magistrates and 70 police were searching company headquarters as well as a factory in nearby Craon identified as the source of the tainted milk.
