Many large multi-national food corporations take pride in providing fresh food products to global consumers. Nevertheless, a food contamination scare in New Zealand is rising to mammoth proportions.
Acording to Channel NewsAsia, "New Zealand dairy giant Fonterra faced a new contamination scare Tuesday with the forced recall of nearly 9,000 bottles of cream which had been tainted with E.coli bacteria."
McLure is quoted as saying that, "We wouldn't want this at any time and certainly now is not a good time for us either, but we're doing everything we can."
As reported by Channel NewsAsia, "The fresh cream had been produced for domestic consumption in the North Island. Fonterra Brands New Zealand Managing Director Peter McClure said he did not want to speculate on how the contamination occurred."
French Dairy giant Dannon has launched a botulism scare lawsuit against Fontera.
