Canadian Milk Product Recalled Due to Cleaning Solution Contaminent

Posted on January 27, 2012

Food and cleaning solutions do not mix.

This combination can be deadly if not corrected, and today Montreal-based Saputo has announced a recall of a milk product sold in Ontario and Aylmer, Quebec, because the product in question may be contaminated with a cleaning solution.

The recalled item is called Neilson Trutaste two percent Microfiltered Partly Skimmed Milk.  It comes in four liter bags and bears the UPC code 066800 00404 4.  The best-by date on the tab reads February 12.

Even though the milk in question may smell normal and look normal, drinking it is another matter.  Ingesting the product may lead to an upset stomach, nausea, or vomiting.  The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has already reported one incident of a negative reaction to the item, and they are continuing to monitor the situation.

As a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles, I understand how vital a recall can be to food safety.  When you go shopping for products for your family to share around the dinner table, they need to meet a certain safety standard.  That standard doesn’t involve cleaning products intermingled with food or drink, obviously.  As a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, I’m glad to see this recall take place before more people could be affected.
