How bad FSANZ is at risk communication (or restrained by gov’t rules): At least 5 sick from crypto linked to raw milk

Below is the official Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSNAZ) public announcement of an outbreak of crypto that has sickened at least 5 people linked to a raw milk cow share agreement:

RAW COW’S MILK

1 litre, 2 litre, 3 litre

Date marking:   NONE

MS & HJ TYLER is conducting a recall of the above product. The product has been available for sale online and at farm gate in SA.

Problem: The recall is due to microbial (Cryptosporidium) contamination

Food safety hazard: Food products contaminated with (Cryptosporidium) may cause illness if consumed.

What to do: Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Media recorded actual facts about people being sick.

You’d think government could do the same.

    Hi Doug – as you no doubt know FSANZ is a coordinating body in Australia for recalls and the state and territory agencies enforce the Code and manage the recalls with the company. In this case SA Heath managed the media and FSANZ as always publishes the recall and spreads the word to our social audience more than 30,000. Like other food safety agencies in Australia we also have information about raw milk on our website and regularly remind people about the dangers of raw milk.
