Milk sold in five Northeastern states has been recalled because it might not have been properly pasteurized.
New York regulators say the milk was marketed under the brand names Midland Farms, Corrado's Market, Jersey Dairy Farms and Trade Fair Premium. It went in sizes from pints to gallons to stores in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island.
Inspectors found failed pasteurization equipment at the Midlands Farm plant near Albany on Sept. 7. The company agreed to the voluntary recall as a precaution against bacterial contaminants like listeria and salmonella. There have been no reports of illness as of Thursday.
Consumers should look for the plant code 36-1661 and a Sept. 24 date code. Milk should be returned to the place it was bought.
