FDA recalls coagulated evaporated milk products from Nestle, says it is not harmful

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has issued a statement recalling some batches of Nestle Ghana’s evaporated milk from markets across the country.

This follows complaints from customers.

The statement issued the FDA said it had undertaken a comprehensive regulator action to ascertain why customers’ milk were coagulated despite not being expired.

The FDA noted that the root cause analysis indicated that the skimmed milk powder, the raw material used to produce the milk complained of, has poor heat stability.

“This results in the denaturing of the protein leading to the coagulation of the milk. Denatured protein, however, poses no health risk. The analysis also confirmed that there was no leaching of dangerous chemicals from the inner (lacquer) lining into the milk product,” parts of the statement read.

It said despite the discovery, the products were not harmful to consumers.

According to the FDA, it found no microbial contamination of the samples, and thus there is no food safety issue.

But following the analysis, batches of evaporated milk manufactured with the affected raw material are being recalled, it added.

“The FDA assures the public that its Industrial Support Department continues to work with Nestle to ensure that the quality defect would not recur,” the statement added.
