An investigation is underway after it was found residents at a long-term care home in Carrot River were given roast beef that had powdered hand cleaner on it.
Doug Dahl with the Saskatchewan Health Authority is apologizing for the mistake saying an employee “decanted” a commercially-available hand cleaner into a spice container and placed it by the facility’s kitchen sink without changing the label. That resulted in another employee not aware of what had happened using the hand cleaner to unintentionally season the roast beef.
There are 35 seniors at the home in question. It is not known how many may have eaten the meal.
Families of the 35 residents were informed as to what went on. No one became sick as a result of what occurred.
