HARRISBURG, Pa. — The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is telling consumers who purchased Whole Milk (labeled as pasteurized) bottled by Pasture Maid Creamery in New Castle, Pennsylvania, to discard the milk. The bottles are marked with a “best by” date of 2/5/16.

A routine milk sample of the whole milk bottled Jan. 25 was pulled and tested by an approved commercial dairy laboratory that found the milk did not meet the requirement for pasteurization.

The milk was sold in half gallon glass bottles and one-pint size plastic bottles. The milk was sold at both retail stores and on property at the farm. The label on the milk a small circular label affixed to the lid is printed with the following information: Pasture Maid Creamery, LLC; Cream Line Milk; Best by date: 2/5/16; Pasteurized, Un-Homogenized.

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture said no other products manufactured by Pasture Maid are affected.
