Can Milk That Is Slightly Contaminated With Cockroaches Still Be Consumed?
I want to ask. Yesterday I just bought 6kg of milk. A few days later I wanted to drink when the package was opened, apparently there was a cockroach in it. possible night entry. I took the initiative to get rid of the top part of my milk powder. Can the bottom milk … which I feel has not been contaminated with cockroaches, can I consume? Thanks
Thank you for the question.
The period of resistance to milk is influenced by many factors, including the way it is stored. In order to last longer, milk should be kept fixed with the aluminum foil in a dry, tightly closed container. This milk-filled container then needs to be placed in a clean, dry place, protected from direct exposure to sunlight, and away from objects that smell pungent, dirty, especially certain other harmful organisms, including cockroaches.
Cockroach milk is very risky contaminated by dirt in the body of the cockroach, even urine, feces, and vomit. How much contamination this cockroach has on milk is certainly not easy to determine just by rough observations. However, if you only remove the top of the milk, it does not necessarily guarantee that the bottom part of the milk is not contaminated and is safe for consumption. Consuming contaminated milk can make you experience digestive infections, poisoning, and many other possible negative effects.
Much better, if you throw all the milk away, and buy more new milk for consumption. Indeed, it's a shame to waste so much milk, especially if the price of milk is quite expensive. However, your health is certainly far more meaningful than the money you spend to buy the milk right?
Hope this helps ...
