Carnation Milk Being Investigated After Mystery Mould Found In Cans

Like us on Facebook:

Have you ever dumped out the contents of a can of milk, and gave yourself a rorschach test?

One woman in Nova Scotia did just that, initially deciphering foreign objects at the bottom of her Carnation Milk can as belonging to a fish or lizard. The skin and bone looking substance, that was only discovered after Ellen Chesal had cooked and eaten the other contents from the can, would have made anyone jump to horrific conclusions.

carnation-milk-lizardThing is, even as the truth came out, the discovery wasn’t much more appetizing. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has told her the substance in question is mould. Smucker Foods of Canada, Carnation’s parent company, considered milk skin the culprit. That can occur when milk products are left opened, are used over time or are not refrigerated properly. A quick google search shows that it looks vastly different from the dark globs in question, but just as unappetizing.

While both organizations are looking for answers as to how Ellen can be responsible for letting her food go bad, we hope she is reconsidering using milk at all. The best case scenario for any can of milk is that it contains the fear, cruelty, and death of an animal and her child.

Carnation will face inspection following the complaint. Until then, I’m sure people will be searching their canned goods thoroughly before cooking.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
