ORGANIC MEADOW RECALLS "TRADITIONS" GLASS BOTTLES

Glass fragments reported in glass bottles; no injuries reported
No other products affected

GUELPH, ON, April 7 /CNW/ - Following extensive consultation with the Canada Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Organic Meadow Inc. today continued its recall of all 946 ml glass bottles of skim, 2%, 1%, 3.8%, unhomogenized and chocolate milk products with an expiry date of April 17, 2011 only.

The milk bottles from Organic Meadow distributed across Ontario as well as Farm Boy branded product distributed in the Ottawa region have been reported to contain glass fragments originating from the packing process at Cochrane's Dairy in Russell, ON. Cochrane's Dairy only produces Organic Meadow glass bottled milk so no other products are affected.

"We are working closely with the CFIA as well as Cochrane's Dairy and want to reassure our customers that all glass bottles under consideration have been removed from store shelves. We are also working with the CFIA and the dairy to investigate the cause of this isolated incident. We want to reassure our dedicated customers that the entire line of Organic Meadow products maintains its high level of quality that you have come to trust. We will be withholding the glass line from the market until we have absolute confidence that this isolated issue is fully resolved," said Ted Zettel, General Manager, Organic Meadow Inc.

No other Organic Meadow product is affected.
