Quebon is recalling regular and chocolate milk produced in Montreal.

The affected milk comes in a variety of sizes, but in all cases is due to expire on Nov. 1, 2 or 3.

The milk was distributed throughout Quebec.

So far nobody has fallen ill consuming the milk, and Agropur is only saying the milk does not meet their standards, saying later that several people had complained the milk tasted bad before the posted 'best before' date.

"There is no health hazard. It's just milk that is going off before reaching the expiry date," said Quebon spokesperson Marc Labelle.

"Bring it back for a full exchange and we'll exchange it."

Local grocers surveyed by CTV Montreal Friday were well-aware of the situation and had made sure to remove the items.

"We've taken everything off the shelves this morning and replaced them with better dates, so we're good and I'm sure the other stores are the same," said Chris Davis of Esposito Grocery Store.
