About the milk

johnboy 6 December 2006 14

The ABC has a snippet on a dud batch of milk contaminated with E.coli, probably not fatal but it will make you unwell.

Turning to the Daily Telegraph we learn more:

National Foods Limited yesterday recalled 14 of its most popular brands in NSW and the ACT, including Pura whole milk, Pura Light Start and Woolworths and Homebrand whole milk which were manufactured on November 24 and have a best-used-before date of December 13.

So, possibly not best before 13 December after all. I always did think it was best to stick to good old Canberra Milk.

What's Your Opinion?

Yep, WMC it’s pretty common. My pop works at Pauls in Brissie, who provide the milk for all the supermarkets under their own labels. It’s all exactly the same, just with a different price tag slapped on the front. “We’re through the looking glass here people”

One would imagine so WMC.

Does this mean that Pura, Woolies and Homebrand are the same milk in different packages and at drastically different prices?

Hot Stinky Overflowing Effluent Pond Road perhaps?

Or am I the only one that noticed it last week?

So dairy flat road should be renamed flat road.

Canberra Milk is not from Canberra anymore – nmo more cows in Fyshwick – turf makes more money.

That must be why I felt sick Sunday morning!

Or it could have been the copious amounts of beer, followed by absinthe, and finally scotch on saturday night…

This possibly explains why my wife spent the best part of the night throwing up and I’ve spent an hour or so on the Porcelain Throne this morning. I look in the fridge to find a Woolies “best before Dec 13th” 2 litre pack standing there!
