Farmington’s Sandy River Farm Market Recalls Whole Milk
Sandy River Farm Market of Farmington has announced a whole milk recall based on testing results from the state.
According to a release, the company decided to issue the recall "out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of its customers."
The release said the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry determined the milk did not achieve proper pasteurization during processing and could have allowed pathogens to survive in the product. No illnesses have been reported, and the processor is cooperating with the recall, the release said.
The recalled milk was sold in sizes of pints, ½ gallons and gallons, with a code of 11-14 on the cap. The milk was sold to retail customers from the Sandy River Farm Market and at Trantens of Main Street in Farmington.
Consumers with questions should contact Erik Johnson at 778-9448. Consumers are urged to discard, or return to point of purchase, any remaining product with the code of 11- 14.
