    By NewsCore - A London borough council confiscated breast milk ice cream being sold in a shop in the city's tourist district over fears it could contain hepatitis viruses and sent it for testing.

    "Following two complaints from members of the public and concerns from the Health Protection Agency and Food Standards Agency, our officers visited the premises and removed all ice cream being sold as containing breast milk," council officer Brian Connell told the London Evening Standard newspaper Tuesday. "Selling foodstuffs made from another person's bodily fluids can lead to viruses being passed on and in this case, potentially hepatitis."


    Now what I want to know is in this type of product recall how do the authorities determine what lot number might be the cause of contamination?
