Breast Milk Storage Question


Hi there!
My husband was painting with an oil based paint over the weekend. He put the paint roller in a loose fitting plastic bag in the refrigerator for a few days while we were out of town. When we came back the refrigerator and freezer smelled like paint. I wanted to know if your freezer bags made of LDP would allow for the transfer of paint vapor through the bags. I am trying to figure out if the milk is safe to feed my baby.

Thank you!


Courtney, our bags are made of LDPE (low density polyethylene) and it is our recommendation to discard the milk since the paint smell was so strong and there is a potential that the vapor could have gone through the bag.  I am so sorry as this means a loss of your milk but it is better to be safe in this situation. 

Kindest Regards,
