What do I do if there is a power outage?

Don’t open the door of the fridge. Keep it cold. Find out how long the power outage will last. If it’s going to be a long time before the power is restored, then it’s best to find another fridge to store the milk, perhaps at a family member’s house in another housing area.

Before you use the milk, we suggest you test it by smelling it.

The general rule is that if not more than 50% of the frozen milk thaws, you can still refreeze it. Chances of contamination are less there.

I would still suggest before you use that particular batch to still test it first.
