DRIED MILK - Storage in a moist atmosphere may give rise to mold growth. Rancidity, caking and bacterial development may be indicative of exposure to air. Milk powder also absorbs moisture, and this may give rise to these conditions.
Losses occur from bursting of the containers solely by reason of their inability to hold the weight of the contents; for example, milk powder in 56 lb. tins usually carries well, but when shipped in 112 lb. tins, usually two tins to the case, handling in transit frequently causes the bursting of the tins, even though the cases themselves are in externally good order and condition.
