A recall was issued Thursday for Organic Meadow And Farm Boy milk carrying the “best before April 17” stamp after glass fragments were found in several bottles of the organic milk.
Ted Zettel, general manager of Organic Meadow, has stated that they are unsure how glass fragments got into the milk bottles, but that Organic Meadow and the facility where the milk is processed are investigating the problem.
A rather large fragment of glass was found in one bottle by a customer in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and four others had smaller fragments found by customers and a store employee when removing an affected bottle from a display cooler.
There have not been any reported injuries stemming from the problem to date.
The recall involves the 946 milliliter size glass bottle and includes the following varieties: one percent, two percent, partly skimmed, whole milk, chocolate milk and unhomogenized.
Zettel is encouraging people to contact the company if they discover that they have an affected product. Organic Meadow will gladly give them a full refund.
