September 13, 2010 - New Jersey - Midlands Farm Inc. issued a recall for its milk sold in 5 northeastern states, including New Jersey, after inspectors found fault with pasteurization equipment on its plant near Albany.
According to Newyorkinjurynews.com, the milk was recalled as a precaution against potential bacterial contaminants, including listeria and salmonella.
New Jersey residents are advised to inspect their milk containers for the plant code 36-1661 with a Sept. 24 date code. If a milk container bearing this information is found, it should be returned to the place of business where it was purchased for an exchange or refund.
The milk products were also sold in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island. According to New York regulators, the milk was bottled in different containers ranging from pints to gallons, and labeled as Midland Farms, Corrado's Market, Jersey Dairy Farms, or Trade Fair Premium.
The firm cooperated with the recall issued by the inspectors, noting that improper pasteurization procedures can pose health risks for consumers. There were no related reports to the recall as of Sept. 9.
