How banas milk, eggs and cheese could become unsafe for you
It’s a trend that could be deadly.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is asking the public to be cautious with the dairy products and eggs that are used in a variety of processed foods.
The FDA says there’s been a spike in outbreaks of food-borne illnesses related to banas, a type of cultured milk used in the manufacture of milk and cheese products.
In recent years, outbreaks have occurred in California, New York and Florida.
But according to the FDA, banas can contain potentially dangerous ingredients, and they should be handled with care.
The agency says consumers can report any food-related illness that they have at a food-safety hotline.
A food-handling tip sheet is available at the FDA’s website.
Banas are made by a company called Banas Dairy Products, which is based in Fort Worth, Texas.
The company says it was formed to offer consumers “a low-cost alternative to the dairy product industry.”
Banas claims it is the “safest and best-quality dairy product in the U.K.”
The FDA is urging the public not to consume any products made from Banas or its milk products.
The products come from a facility in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and are manufactured by a separate company called Lola Farms.
The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service says Banas and other cultured milk products are sold in U. S. grocery stores and other retailers.
“There are currently no documented outbreaks of illness associated with Banas,” the agency says in its warning.
“However, it is important to note that the FDA has not tested Banas, Banas’ milk or Banas eggs, and the FDA does not recommend consuming any Banas products.”
A banas company spokesperson told CBS News that Banas is investigating the FDA warning and will take additional action.
“The FDA has issued a warning and has been working with Bananas Dairy Products to develop a response that is appropriate to Banas brand,” company spokesperson Kristin Hildebrandt said in a statement.
Bananas has said the FDA is wrong to suggest that Bananas products are unsafe.
The Banas milk and Banas cheese are manufactured at a facility outside of Fort Lauderdale.
It’s the only company that makes the products.
