Agropur is warning people not to drink its Québon brand of milk produced at its Montreal plant.

The recall includes both cartons and bags of white and chocolate milk.

The affected milk products expire on Nov. 1, 2 and 3.

Consumers can check next to the expiry date for the code AGRT 2889, which means it comes from the Montreal plant.

The company said the products do not meet its quality standards.

Agropur said it has received complaints, but there have been no reports of any illnesses associated with people drinking the milk.

It said the recall is a preventative measure.

The products were distributed in grocery stores in many parts of Quebec including the Montreal, Abitibi, Estrie, Lanaudière, the Montérégie and the Laurentian regions.

Agropur said consumers should return the products to the grocery store for an exchange or refund.

They can also call the company’s consumer help line at 1-800-501-1150.
