Consumer Alert: Improperly Pasteurized Milk

New York State Agriculture Commissioner Richard A. Ball today alerted consumers that Chocolate Whole Milk produced by Dutch Hill Creamery, located at 114 Knapp Hill Road, Chenango Forks, NY 13746, is being voluntarily recalled due to improper pasteurization.  Proper pasteurization heats milk to effectively eliminate all pathogenic bacteria, such as Listeria and Salmonella.  To date, no illnesses have been reported to the Department in connection with this product.

The recalled Chocolate Whole Milk was sold at: Dutch Hill Creamery, 114 Knapp Hill Road, Chenango Forks, NY; Taste NY Market, Front Street, Binghamton, NY; Broome County Cooperative Extension Farmers’ Market, Front Street, Binghamton, NY; and Country Wagon Produce, 2859 Route 26, Maine, NY. The product was sold under the name Dutch Hill Creamery. It was packaged in one pint and one half-gallon plastic containers bearing the container code: 91817.

A routine sample of the product, taken by an inspector from the Division of Milk Control and Dairy Services, was tested by the New York State Food Laboratory and revealed that this lot of the product was improperly pasteurized.

Consumers who purchased this product should discard it. Questions may be directed to Dutch Hill Creamery at (607) 222-0691.
