CANNED MILK - Condensed and Evaporated. The damage to the labels is frequently caused by rust which may be attributed to condensation during transit in the carrying vessel, brought about by temperature changes. This particularly occurs when the consignments are loaded in European ports during the winter months and then exported to the Tropics.
Experiments in stowing milk in deep tanks with controlled temperature and ventilation have proved that rust damage to the cans and labels may be frequently eliminated.
Canned milk, particularly the cheaper grades, is packed in cartons which often cannot withstand normal handling, and subsequently the cans become dented. A brownish discoloration of condensed milk may be indicative of the age of the contents.
