These products are not sold directly to consumers, but are used as ingredients in a number of foods such as bakery products. While these milk and buttermilk powder products received extensive testing by Valley Milk and no harmful agents were identified, the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has raised concerns regarding the cleaning records for the drying equipment used to produce these products, casting doubt on whether these products may have contained salmonella. Testing by FDA as well as the Commonwealth of Virginia did not identify salmonella in any of these products; however, in order to ensure that its customers receive the highest quality and safest products possible, Valley Milk is initiating this voluntary recall.
All customers that have received these products have been notified by Valley Milk and instructed to return the suspect powder or document the destruction of the powder, after contacting Valley Milk for specific instructions. In case someone identifies Valley Milk powders with the above lot numbers in their dry storage warehouse and has not been contacted by a Valley Milk representative, please contact Michael Curtis at 301-512-5053 or firstname.lastname@example.org immediately for instructions.
