Safety Of Consumption Of Milk Which Is Hollow Due To Being Bitten By A Rat?
Hello doctor, Some time ago I bought 10 boxes of milk at an agent. However, while I was taking milk from the box, I found a milk box that was hollow like being bitten by a rat. I can take milk that is still in good packaging, it’s just a little sticky because of spilled milk spilled. My question is, is the milk box whose packaging is still intact, but sticky, is it still safe for consumption?
Hello Cindra, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Based on the story you gave, the thing that I conclude is that 9 other packages still look intact, and 1 package is hollow like being bitten by a rat. On perforated packages you should not consume them because of the risk of transmitting a disease. But on 9 packages that are still intact, you must be careful. Before you drink it, re-check the milk wrapper, make sure there are no tears at all, then you should keep washing the container first using soap, and running water before drinking it because contaminated outer wrap such as dirt / rat urine still has the potential to transmit the disease. If all of the above you have done, the milk is still sealed, and the expiration date is not due, the milk is still sterile, and safe for consumption. Next time you have to be more careful in shopping, choose the best items by choosing more carefully.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
