Milk In Aluminum Foil Packaging In Bite Teeth?
, is it still safe to consume if the milk is still in aluminum foil in a mouse bite? I will make sure to throw away half the pack of milk, the top half is half is it okay to consume? Is it all contaminated and can no longer be consumed?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Previously it needs to be agreed, that food or drinks in any form that has been contaminated with mice, can not be consumed because of the many potential diseases contained therein.
In your case, if you are absolutely sure that only the bottom is affected and the top is not exposed to mice at all, and that there is no gap that takes too long to open the milk, so that not only mice but other small animals can enter, no problem to consume it, because milk powder is a separate component. Dirty in some milk powder does not necessarily pollute or damage the whole milk, it is different if the milk has been mixed with water.
The problem is, we often cannot ensure that other parts are completely free of dirt and contamination. Because what is said to be contamination is not only in physical form, the pungent aroma can contaminate. Like for example putting milk powder in the cupboard together with detergent, glass cleaner and dishwashing soap, after a while, even though the packaging has been tightly closed, the aroma of these chemicals can stick and make the milk should not be consumed.
So in your case, to be more safe, our advice would be better if you don't consume the milk completely, and next time, immediately move the milk powder to a special plastic container so that it is not exposed to rats. So, hopefully answering your question.
