Doug Westendorp, owner of MOO-ville in Nashville, has issued the following clarification of an earlier news release:
“MOO-ville stands behind it products 100 percent. There was a glitch in the paperwork, there was no question on the quality of the milk. The milk in the voluntary recall is completely wholesome and safe.”
ORIGINAL NEW RELEASE: Out of an abundance of caution, MOO-Ville, 5875 M-66 Nashville, has issued a recall of certain milk products due to inadequate testing of the milk. The testing is required by the federal Pasteurized Milk Ordinance in order to sell milk products. No illnesses have been associated with the products being recalled, according to the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
The problem was discovered during record review as part of a routine dairy plant inspection conducted at the facility by the state agency.
Milk products covered by the recall were distributed in the greater Grand Rapids, Battle Creek, Kalamazoo, and Lansing areas.
All of the following recalled products have a “best by” date of Nov. 10 or Nov. 14.
• Mooville 2% Reduced Fat Cream Line Milk (gallon size plastic jugs);
• Mooville Whole Milk (gallon and half-gallon plastic jugs);
• Mooville 2% Reduced Fat Milk (gallon, half-gallon and pint jugs);
• Mooville Skim Milk (gallon and half-gallon plastic jugs);
