Stap Dairy Farm posted the following statement to Facebook on Thursday, June 14th:
Attention milk customers:
This morning during a routine inspection of our processing plant it was found that a mistake was made with last weeks batch of chocolate milk. While that milk was pasteurized at the proper temperature the remaining air space above the milk was below proper temp for the start of the process this can taint milk quality, milk labeled 618-8 can be returned to the farm or discarded at home, other batches were checked out and were up to code.
The state Department of Agriculture and Markets discovered the improper pasteurization during a routine visit.
No illnesses have been reported at this time.
