FoodQualityNews reports that the British Food Standards Agency (FSA) is all upset about ice cream made from breast milk.
Eeks. It might violate food safety standards!
The Baby Gaga breastmilk ice cream is sold by a London firm called The Icecreamists. The company has been forced to withdraw Baby Gaga in response to complaints that it might not be safe for human consumption.
The milk comes from 15 moms. It is screened prior to sale, in part because breast milk can pass on things like hepatitis.
But nowhere in this account does it say whether the milk was pasteurized or how the ice cream tastes. I want to know!
