Cooks Farm Dairy, 2950 E. Seymour Lake Rd. Ortonville, MI 48462 is voluntarily recalling their Cooks Farm Dairy Chocolate Milk because it may contain illness-causing pathogens. Although no illnesses have been reported, Cooks Farm Dairy is recalling this product out of an abundance of caution.
The MDARD conducted routine sampling of the chocolate milk, where analysis found the sample with high levels of phosphatase, which indicates that the chocolate milk was under-pasteurized. The dairy plant’s owner is cooperating with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) in working to determine the cause.
The chocolate milk is packaged in plastic pints, plastic half gallons and plastic gallon containers with a 7/20 code date on the bottle. The product was distributed to retail stores in southeastern Michigan and at the “Endless Cup of Chocolate Milk” booth at the Oakland County Fair July 4th through the 13th, 2014.
Consumers who have purchased Cooks Farm Dairy Chocolate Milk with a 7/20 date code date are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. No other Cooks Dairy Farm products are involved in this recall.
