Recall Alert! Health Canada Recalls Farmer’s Dairy Products

Health Canada has issued a recall order earlier this week regarding several branded milk and dairy products after reports of the presence of sanitizer in these products emerged. Although the Farmer’s Dairy made an announcement about the issue, Health Canada still decided to issue a formal health notice in order to warn the public about consuming these products.

Health Canada Ordered Recall on Farmer, Northumberland, and Natural Dairy Products

The Health Canada issued the order after receiving reports from customers that the milk products they bought have this distinct chemical taste. After conducting an investigation that lasted for two weeks, the Quebec-based Agropur Cooperative pulled out its Dairy milk products from their shelves voluntarily. You can read the official statement the company released on their Facebook page below:

Veronique Boileau also stated that so far, their findings couldn’t determine the composition of the said solution or what it’s made of. However, Boileau reassured everyone that the presence of the sanitizer would not pose any health complications or health risks to the consumers. Nonetheless, the company already made some preventive actions to pull out their milk and dairy products from the shelves.

Farmer’s Dairy Took Pride in Producing Quality Milk Products Made Solely By Canadian Farmers

Unlike other dairy companies where the majority of its stockholders, shareholders, and board of directors are composed of business elites, the Farmer’s Dairy isn’t anything like that. In fact, Farmer Dairy is proud to be composed of 100% Canadian farmers. Farmer’s Dairy became the voice of the local Canadian farmers who wanted to produce high quality of milk to its consumers while supporting the local industry farmers market. The milk produced by the company is all organic, healthy and affordable for all of the Canadian citizens.

The company envisioned to provide quality and healthy dairy products for the Canadians to enjoy while boosting their overall health and well-being. Aside from that, they also made sure to provide a healthy and sustainable production of milk for the Canadian citizens. With over 12,000 dairy farms all over the country, the DFC strives to maintain its leading position to become the primary provider of dairy products in the country. The company wanted to boost the dairy industry for today and in the upcoming future generation despite the setbacks and bad reputations the milk and dairy products are now gaining in the health industry.

That’s why a slightest complication and health risks are enough for the company to take the initiative and pull out their products for damage control. They wanted to ensure and maintain their credibility of producing only the best milk products as well as promoting its health benefits.
