B & B International Connections Has Recalled Imported Russian Milk

 (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that B & B International Connections, Inc. has recalled 500ml glass bottles of "Mozhayiskoe" (Product of Russia) Sterilized Milk and 1 liter packages of 3.2% "Milaya Mila" (Product of Russia) Sterilized Milk because they contain sulfonamide, a drug prohibited in food producing animals and lactating dairy cattle. In addition, people who have sensitivities to sulfa drugs may run the risk of allergic reactions if they consume these products.

The milk was distributed to retail stores in the New York metropolitan area.

"Mozhayiskoe" sterilized milk is packaged in 500ml glass bottles with the following codes: October 23, 2002 and November 12, 2002. "Milaya Mila" sterilized milk is packaged in a 1-liter tetra pack (box) with the code December 12, 2002. Both product packages are labeled entirely in Russian.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
