Four milk brands sold in New York and other nearby states are participating in a voluntary recall. The brands are Midland Farms, Corrado's Market, Jersey Dairy Farms and Trade Fair Premium. All those companies sell milk produced at the Midland Farms plant, located in Menands, New York, where yesterday, according to a press release, inspectors 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 so far, but milk consumers are warned not to use or consume the recalled products even if it does not appear or smell spoiled. If you have a container of this brand of milk in your fridge, you should look for the plant code 36-1661 with a Sept. 24th date code, and return the milk to the place it was bought. An udder option is just to throw it (sorry). For a look back on all the recent recalls, click here.
