Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

This Home Management student is comparing three different dessert toppings. Borden’s Starlac powdered milk, on the counter to the left, was used in preparing the toppings. Borden sold the product in the 1950s to the mid-1960s as a new convenience food for busy homemakers. A 1966 recall for salmonella contamination and a subsequent lack of public confidence in the product caused the company to stop manufacturing Starlac.
