Tnuva Food Industries Ltd. yesterday announced that it was recalling cartons of 3% milk due to contamination by cleaning liquids. The recall covers one-liter cartons of homogenized milk with the expiration of 22 August 2012, certified by Rabbi Weitman.
The cartons, marked with the Hebrew letter “Bet”, were marketed in central Israel between Binyamina in the north, Rishon LeZion in the south, and Lod in the east. Tnuva notified the Ministry of Health of the incident and is cooperating with it.
This morning a class action suit for NIS 71 million was filed in the Tel Aviv District Court over the contaminated milk.
Tnuva said, “Tnuva is committed to the public’s health, the quality of its products, and is operating with full transparency vis-a-vis consumers. Out of caution, we are recalling the products from stores and notifying consumers via the media. We apologize to consumers and we will continue to act to ensure the quality and safety of its products.”
