Consumer Alert: Milk Recall in Five States

milk recallIs anything safe to eat or drink these days? Just weeks after a massive egg recall, the Food and Drug Administration has announced that Midland Farms is voluntarily recalling 8,000 gallons of milk due to the potential of improper pasteurization.

Inspectors found failed pasteurization equipment at the Midlands Farm plant near Albany on Sept. 7, according to AP.

Proper pasteurization heats milk in order to effectively eliminate all pathogenic bacteria, such as Listeria and Salmonella.

Check your refrigerator and see if you have any of the recalled products.

The milk is sold under the brand names Midland Farms, Corrado’s Milk, Jersey Dairy Farms and Trade Fair Premium. Recalled products have a sell-by date of Sept. 24 and were sold in  New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island. They all possess the plant code 36-1661. Family Kitchen lists the recalled products.

The recalled products were not found to be contaminated with any harmful pathogens, but the company is voluntarily recalling the milk as a precautionary measure.

Luckily, no illnesses have been reported to the FDA in connection with this problem, but the agency urges consumers to not to drink this milk even if it does not appear to be spoiled.

Consumers who have purchased any of the recalled products should return them to the place of purchase or discard them. If you have questions about the milk recall, you can visit the FDA’s site.
