Farm recalls goat milk because of improper pasteurization

An Ohio farm is recalling goat milk with a March 13 date code because it was not properly pasteurized and may contain pathogens.


Paint Valley Farms of Beach City, OH, has voluntarily recalled about 115 gallons of its goat milk that were distributed in one-quart plastic bottles, according to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

“The product did not achieve proper pasteurization during processing and pathogens could have survived,” according to the department.

As of Friday, no illnesses had been linked to the recalled goat milk. Anyone who consumed the goat milk and develops symptoms of foodborne illness should immediately contact a physician.

E. coli, Listeria and Salmonella are all known to be found in unpasteurized milk.

Anyone who bought the goat milk should return it to Paint Valley Farms or discard it safely. Consumers with questions can contact John or David Miller at 330-359-0304.
