Green Field Farms Dairy of Fredericksburg, OH, has announced a recall of 1,242 units of its whole chocolate milk product because a laboratory analysis indicated the product was not effectively pasteurized.

Pasteurization kills harmful bacteria, parasites and viruses.

The affected milk was distributed in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Delaware and Washington D.C. from Sept. 7 through Sept. 16, 2021. 

There is concern that consumers may have the milk in their homes because it has a date code of Sept. 29. No other identifying codes were included in the company’s recall notice, which was posted by the Food and Drug Administration.

The issue was discovered during routine product testing conducted by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. 

As of the posting of this recall, there have been no reports of illness involving the recalled products. 

Consumers who have purchased this product should return it to the place of purchase to receive a refund.
