Rock House Creamery Newborn, GA, has issued a voluntary recall for its whole milk and buttermilk.
“During a routine inspection conducted by the Georgia Department of Agriculture on Sept. 13, 2023, pasteurization records were found incomplete for select lots in September. Since these pasteurization charts are the primary record of pasteurization, Rock House Creamery is performing a voluntary recall,” according to the State Department.
“Drinking raw milk that has not undergone pasteurization to kill disease-causing germs can lead to serious illness.”
The affected products were distributed to Madison, Mansfield, Athens, Atlanta, and Milledgeville retailers. Consumers are strongly urged to dispose of any product remaining in their refrigerators.
Affected products include:
- Rock House Creamery whole milk with Best Buy dates of 9/10/2023, 9/17/2023, 9/20/2023, 9/24/2023, and 10/01/2023.
- Rock House Creamery buttermilk with a best buy date of 10/02/2023.
“The Georgia Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety professionals work overtime to ensure the safety and security of our state’s food supply, and we’re grateful our team quickly identified and took action to correct this issue,” said Agriculture Commissioner Tyler Harper.
There have been no illnesses reported to date. Rock House Creamery has identified the cause of the issue, and corrective actions have been taken to resolve the matter.
