Voluntary Recall

We would like to advise our consumers that after further investigation, a cause was identified related to the off-taste perception. We found that some residual cleaning solution remained in the tanker used to transport the milk. The level and concentration were assessed, and although it has resulted in off-taste products, it does not pose a health risk for consumers. Actions were immediately taken to prevent the reoccurrence of this incident.

Following the results of our investigation, the Agency completed its evaluation and has decided to proceed with a change of classification because of a regulatory non conformity. The evaluation in regards to the health risk for consumers remains unchanged.

No further action is requested from the Agency. We already conducted a withdrawal on a voluntary basis a few days ago. Agropur contacted customers and distributors who have received these products so that they remove them from the shelves immediately; in which case the products were retrieved and a credit issued.

A Class III, is a situation in which the use of, or exposure to, a violative product is not likely to cause any adverse health consequences.

Based on the reported events, this remains isolated to a brief production period, and no reported events were logged for subsequent production days.

Consumers can still return the listed products to their point of sales for a full refund or contact our Consumer response at 1-800-501-1150.

We apologize for any inconvenience this situation could cause you and thank you in advance for your cooperation.
