Other students in the Spokane school district reported chocolate milk cartons that were partially full with a similar chemical-like liquid. The Spokane Public School district confirmed that they are pulling all chocolate milk cartons with a "best by date" of February 6 and are stopping shipment of the rest of the order from Darigold.
A Darigold spokesperson said testing results determined that the chocolate milk cartons contained “trace amounts of food-grade sanitizers and water” but that it “poses no human health risk.”
“The voluntary withdrawal pertains only to school milk produced at the Spokane plant, which is fat free chocolate milk half pint cartons with a ‘best by date’ of Feb. 6. We have talked with the state Department of Agriculture and notified them of the voluntary withdrawal,” Darigold’s spokesperson said.
“Food safety and consumer health is a top priority for Darigold. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."
