Recall of Fluid Milk Products out of Midland Farms, Inc.

Posted Sep 08 2010 5:33pm
FDA posts press releases and other notices of recalls and safety alerts from states as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties. FDA is not responsible for the content of these notices.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 8, 2010 - New York State Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker today alerted consumers that Midland Farms, located in Menands, New York, is voluntarily recalling certain milk products due to the potential of improper pasteurization. Proper pasteurization heats milk in order to effectively eliminate all pathogenic bacteria, such as Listeria and Salmonella.

The recalled milk products are all sold in plastic containers and are marketed under the brand names Midland Farms, Corrado's Market, Jersey Dairy Farms and Trade Fair Premium. They all possess the plant code 36-1661. The products also possess a black ink date code near the top of the container. The recalled products were sold in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island. The products involved in this recall include:

Recalled Gallons:

·         "Midland Farms Milk" with the date code SEP24

·         "Midland Farms Reduced Fat, 2% Milk Fat Milk" with the date code SEP24

The problem was detected by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets' milk inspectors during an inspection on September 7, 2010 when they found a failure of pasteurization equipment at the Menands milk plant. While the recalled products have not been found to be contaminated with any harmful pathogens, the company is voluntarily recalling all production as a precautionary measure.

No illnesses have been reported to date to this Department in connection with this problem. Consumers are warned not to use or consume the recalled products even if it does not appear or smell spoiled.

Consumers who have purchased any of the recalled products should return them to the place of purchase or discard them. Consumers with questions may contact Midland Farms directly at 518-436-7038.
