Local Dairy Plant ‘Cooks Farm Dairy’ Recalls Chocolate Milk

ORTONVILLE (WWJ) — Ortonville’s Cooks Farm Dairy is voluntarily recalling a portion of chocolate milk due to fears that it may contain illness-causing pathogens due to improper pasteurization.

The chocolate milk is packaged in plastic pints, half gallons and 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, since July 4.

Although no illnesses have been reported, Cooks Farm Dairy is recalling this product as a precaution.

The dairy plant’s owner is cooperating with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) in working to determine the cause of the under-pasteurized chocolate milk.

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.

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 products are involved in the recall.

Consumers with questions can contact Dairy Plant Manager Tom Kobet at 248-627-3329.
