PARIS Aug 30 French dairy group Danone
said it was on track to deliver third-quarter organic
sales growth of around 5 percent despite the "significant
impact" on its baby nutrition unit in Asia of a product recall
in the region.
Finance chief Pierre-Andre Terisse added in a statement on
Friday that the group would meet its growth and margin targets
for 2013 thanks to action plans to restore sales in the affected
Danone said on Thursday it was considering legal action
against New Zealand's Fonterra after the maker of
Karicare milk formula had to recall products due to incorrect
tests that led to a global food safety scare.
