The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has announced the recall of various milk products due to spoilage. Affected brands include Natrel, PC Organics and Irresistibles Bio. The CFIA considers this a "Class III" hazard: "not likely to cause any adverse health consequences."

Recalled products include varieties of skim milk, 1% partly skimmed, 2% partly skimmed, homogenized milk, organic fine-filtered milk and 3.8% whole milk. They are being sold in Ontario,  Nova Scotia and Quebec. Check your cartons: Expiry dates range from October 23 to October 31.

The recall was issued after consumers reported the milk went bad weeks before the carton's expiration date. The source of the problem has been linked to the issues with the pasteurizing equipment in the company's Quebec City plant.

If you have any of these products, go ahead and return them to your corner grocery store.
