Food Lion has recalled some of its store-brand milk because of concerns that it might spoil prematurely.Posted — Updated
"This does not appear to be a food safety issue, but rather a quality one," company spokeswoman Kimberly Blackburn said in a statement, noting customer complaints prompted the action.
All of the affected containers had been pulled from store shelves by Friday, Blackburn said.
The affected products are quart-sized and have expiration dates of Nov. 3, Nov. 4, Nov. 9 or Nov. 10. They bear the following labels:
- Food Lion quart milk HVD, bearing UPC code 3582600306 and item number 64286-8
- Food Lion quart 2% milk, bearing UPC code 3582602434 and item number 64287-6
- Food Lion quart skim milk bearing UPC code 2582604059 and item number 64289-2
Customers who purchased any of the products can return them to any Food Lion store for a full refund, Blackburn said.
The company is working with its supplier to determine why the milk was spoiling, she said.
