Coagulated batch of milk products from Nestlé, Carnation and Ideal Milk, have been removed from the shelves, a statement by Nestlé has revealed.
This comes after the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) revealed that the viral coagulated Nestlé milk products, Carnation Milk and Ideal Milk, are not contaminated.
Scores of Ghanaians took to social media to express their dissatisfaction with Coagulated Carnation and Ideal milk purchased from outlets.
The social media consumers, who were frustrated about the issue, called on the FDA and Nestlé to avert the situation.
“A microbial analysis was conducted on samples taken from the manufacturing facility and complaint samples at the FDA laboratory. Results from the analysis indicated that there was no microbial contamination of the samples and, therefore, there is no food safety issue with the said coagulated milk products from Nestlé. So far, the root cause analysis indicates that the skimmed milk powder (raw material) used to produce the milk complained of, has poor heat stability.
“The analysis also confirmed that there was no leaching of dangerous chemicals from the inner (lacquer) lining into the milk product.”
“This results in the denaturing of the protein leading to coagulation of the milk. The denatured protein poses no health risk,” excerpts of the FDA statement read.
In a latest development, Nestlé says it has observed with great concern the fact that consumers have felt let down by the quality of some batches of Carnation and Ideal Milk.
According to the statement, Nestlé has taken the decision to take all Ideal evaporated and Carnation tea creamer with specific batch number off the shelves temporarily.
