Reasons for coagulation

The statement further revealed the milk coagulated because the skimmed milk (raw material) used in producing them had poor heat stability but was not anything harmful.

"This [the poor heat stability] in the denaturing of the protein leading to the coagulation of the milk. Denatured protein however poses no health risk," the FDA said.

So far, the FDA says, 57,938 cans of coagulated milk have been recalled. The statement further listed the batches of the products which have been affected by the recall directive.
