Dungeness Valley Creamery Recalls Raw Milk in WA State

Today the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) is warning consumers not to drink Dungeness Valley Creamery brand raw Jersey whole milk, raw Jersey skim milk, or raw Jersey cream because the products may be contaminated with E. coli.

Products with best-by dates of March 2 or later may be contaminated.

The firm sells its products in gallon, half gallon, quart and pint containers. Today’s health alert includes all container sizes of the unpasteurized milk products.

The health alert is being initiated after routine sampling by WSDA found toxin-producing E. coli in a sample of raw cream.

Based in Sequim, the Dungeness Valley Creamery and WSDA are continuing their investigation into the source of the problem.

Currently, no human illnesses have been linked with these products. However, due to the time it takes to trace back illnesses to a food product, it is impossible to determine if any illnesses may be connected.

According to the Dungeness Valley Creamery website, the firm’s products are sold at the following retail locations:

Bainbridge Island: Real Foods; Pan D’Amore; Walt’s Lynwood Center Market

Bothell: Tru Health

Bremerton: CJ’s Evergreen General Store; Fresh Local

Federal Way: Marlene’s Market & Deli

Issaquah: Front Street Red Apple

Longview: Country village Nutrition Shoppe

Olympia: Olympia Food Co-op East; Olympia Food Co-op West

Port Angeles: Country Aire; Good To Go

Seattle: Madison Market; My Asia’s Essentials; Pike Place Market Creamery

Sequim: Sequim Prairie Grange; Red Rooster Grocery; Sunny Farms Farm Store

Dungeness Valley Creamery was profiled by the Seattle Times in 2010 after its milk was linked to three E. coli illnesses.  Here is the video of the 2010 interview:

    Raw milk should no be allowed to be sold direct to the general public.  It is a health hazzard!  If you want to consume a raw milk product, go buy a cow!

    Jackie – don’t believe everything you think. You are merely parroting the lies you’ve been convinced of. I’ll make my own glutathione (free radical scavenger) from the cysteine I get from Dungeness Valley Creamery RAW milk. I’ll never spend a cent on disease-causing pretend milk from dairies with sub-par yet legal standards. Besides, for taste? ~I’ll have mine raw, tyvm.
