New safety seals added to Island Farms milk products after massive recall
Several brands of milk produced at a Vancouver Island-based factory are being voluntarily recalled after “foreign material” was found in some of the products. June 15, 2017.
Island Farms says it’s introducing new safety measures to its products following a massive milk recall at its Victoria plant that remains shrouded in mystery.
Agropur, the company that owns Island Farms, says peel-off double protection safety seals have been added to all milk jugs.
It said it hopes the added seal will reassure consumers and prevent anything similar from happening again.
So far, the company has remained tight-lipped on the “harmful extraneous material” that was found in the milk when it was recalled last month – or how it may have gotten there.
The RCMP later announced it was also investigating the recall because of the possibility it may have been tampered with.
That investigation, as well as a Canadian Food Inspection Agency probe, are ongoing.
