Oregon Dairy Recalls Nor-Cal Milk Products
Umpqua Dairy Products has recalled certain milk and drink products sold in Oregon, southwest Washington and northern California after a strain of salmonella bacteria sickened 23 people.
The first cases were reported last October.
A doctor with the Oregon Public Health Department says officials were just recently able to confirm the matching bacteria strain in the Umpqua Dairy milk plant.
Health officials say the risk to consumers is very low.
The Umpqua Dairy Plant in Roseburg, Oregon has been temporarily closed for cleaning.
The products to be discarded have a plant code of 41-62. The recall affects milk with an expiration date of September fifth buttermilk with an expiration date of September tenth; and orange juice and fruit drink with an expiration date of September 15th or earlier.
For more information, consumers can call 888-672-MILK (6455).
