Another flour recall
June 26, 2017 - Lost Acre Variety of West Montrose is recalling its Lost Acre Variety brand All Purpose Flour.
It might be contaminated with E. coli 0121, says the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
The CFIA has been trying since late March to track down flour from Ardent Mills because of E.coli 0121.
So far the CFIA has not said which Ardent Mills facility is the source of contamination.
Ardent Mills has its head office in Denver, Colorado, and owns mills across Canada, including several in Ontario.
Milk board calls for five per cent increase
June 23, 2017 - The Dairy Farmers of Ontario marketing board has put out a call for more milk.
It has increased quotas by five per cent, effective July 1.
This quota has no restrictions and can be sold.
The five provinces that jointly manage milk production, called P5, say that they need more milk to meet demand.
Butter is usually stockpiled during peak milk production season, which is just ending, and this year the “stocks have not surpassed their updated target level of 35,000 tonnes,” says a statement from P5.
“Demand for dairy products continues to be strong while P5 processing capacity has increased since the beginning of April but continues to be closely monitored.”
