Cymru Dairy reveal batch of milk is ‘tainted’

Published

on

CYMRU DAIRY has released a statement regarding a batch of milk with ‘a taint to it’.

The company launched in Cardiff more than 10 years ago, supplying a diverse range of customers, from independent retailers to hospitals and from high end hotels to cost sector caterers.

According to the Cymru Dairy website, the batches of milk which have a taint to it, include:

Cymru Dairy 2 litre Whole Milk Use by: 08/01/19 and 09/01/19
Cymru Dairy 2 litre Semi Skimmed Milk Use by: 09/01/19 and 11/01/19

The company have said that the source of the taint has been isolated, and that there is no food safety risk to customers. Cymru Dairy have also offered a full refund to any customers affected.

The statement said: “We are aware that a small proportion of our Cymru Dairy milk has a taint to it. This is an isolated incident that relates only to the products and use by codes detailed above – no other products or codes are implicated.

“Our milk processor has assured us there is no food safety risk to customers from consuming this milk. The taint appears to develop over time; hence we have only been made aware of this issue a number of days after we had supplied it to our customers.

“The source of the taint has since been traced to well water from a single farm. Our milk processor immediately stopped taking milk from this farm and supply will only be reinstated when they are confident the issue is fully resolved. The milk has been fully tested by our processor and the situation has also been discussed with local Environmental Health Officers (EHO). The Company took the decision not to recall the product on the basis that there is no food safety risk and the complaint relates to a small proportion of the milk supplied.

“Our milk processor has processed our milk for over 10 years and we have an excellent track record of supplying quality product. The processor is externally accredited, regularly audited and achieved the highest rating at their latest audit. This particular batch of milk passed all of the testing and normal production procedures from raw milk reception, through to post-production testing. Cymru Dairy operates an externally accredited distribution site and when visited today, the local EHO was satisfied with the systems we have in place and the manner in which we are dealing with this issue.

“Finally, I would like to apologise to our loyal customers and consumers for this situation and any inconvenience it may have caused. We will obviously ensure anyone affected will receive a full refund.”

Next stage of works to clear Cwmduad landslide

Published

on

PHASE two of the works to stabilise a landslide in Cwmduad has begun following the recovery of a lorry from the river below.

Carmarthenshire County Council is leading the operation to clear the site and re-open the A484 for traffic travelling between Carmarthen and Newcastle Emlyn, following the landslide in October.

Phase one, which commenced before Christmas, created a safe zone for the recovery of a lorry that was swept in to the river during the storm.

That recovery took place earlier today (Monday, January 14, 2019).

Phase two, to permanently stabilise the embankment, involves complex drainage and geotechnical works.

The highway structure will then be assessed before any indication can be given as to when the road will re-open.

The council has thanked the community, and affected commuters, for their patience whilst site assessments and works have been underway.

Ruth Mullen, Director of Environment for Carmarthenshire County Council, said: “We are now making progress in what has been a highly complex operation and legal process between the council, partner agencies and the landowner.

“We fully appreciate the impact this has had on the community, and we wish to reiterate that we have worked without delay to undertake site investigations in the immediate aftermath of the landslide, along with clearance and construction works to make the area safe.

“We are working as quickly as we can to re-open the road as soon as possible, and would like to thank those affected most sincerely for their patience.”

Until the road is re-opened, traffic will continue to be diverted along the B4333 Carmarthen – Newcastle Emlyn.

Additional bus services remain in place:

  • A shuttle service currently runs from Cwmduad to Tycoch to catch the 460 service at 7.25am, 9.35am and 10.55am. Return journeys are at 2.25pm and 4.45pm.
  • The 460 service is currently operating on a diversion route
