ALBANY, N.Y. (CBS 2/1010 WINS/AP) — This consumer alert may affect your morning routine.

A New York farm is voluntarily recalling 8,000 gallons of milk because of improper pasteurization – so take a minute to check before adding that milk to your cereal or coffee.

The recall includes milk sold at stores in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island.

Recalled products have a sell-by date of Sept. 24 and were sold under the brand names Midland Farms, Corrado’s Milk, Jersey Dairy Farms and Trade Fair Premium.

Inspectors found failed pasteurization equipment at the Midlands Farm plant near Albany on Sept. 7. The company agreed to the voluntary recall the product as a precaution against bacterial contaminants like listeria and salmonella. There have been no reports of illness as of Thursday.

Consumers should look for the plant code 36-1661 and a Sept. 24 date code.

“If for whatever reason consumers have this in their refrigerator, it is important for them to either discard the product or take it back to the place of purchase,” Jessica Ziehm, spokesperson for the Department of Agriculture, said.

Consumers with questions may contact Midland Farms directly at 518-436-7038.

    Wow! Pretty ignorant remarks!
    All milk must be pasteurized in order for it to be safe and stay fresh.
    Glenx, we did a lot of stupid things when we were kids. That doesn’t make them safe or give us the right to shovel out misleading and dangerous advice on the web.

  3. Omar says:

  4. JasonS says:

    Are any udder brands affected?

  5. glenx says:

    when I was a kid we got milk straight from the cow ,I don’t think unpasteurated milk will hurt anyone ,but I guess it’s the law now..

    pasteurization is NOT good for you. Get you milk directly from the source. Buy a Cow.

    Cows are ruminants, so they are meant to eat grass, not wheat, not corn, and not soy, especially not genetically modified corn and soybeans. If they were not crammed into dirty, manure infested feed lots, they would not require antibiotics to treat infections caused by their inability to digest and process this paltry excuse for feed. Pasteurization is needed in order to remove the blood, pus, and bacteria that disease ridden cows’ milk is infested with. People need to support grass-fed milk from local farmers who treat their cows humanely, and do not try to sneak a disgusting and dangerous product into our food supply and disguise it as something we all must have to be healthy. Shame on the lobbyists and the dairy industry for continuing this filthy practice. Shame on us for not being more informed about our food sources. It is time to wake up and smell the curdled milk.

      Or you could just stop drinking it altogether. Milk is made to make babies fat. Baby cows drink cows milk. Baby humans drink human milk. Adults are not made to drink and digest milk, hence the people that think they are “lactose-intolerant. NewsFlash: we are all lactose intolerant cause we are not supposed to be drinking it. It ‘s sole purpose is to make fatten up babies who can’t eat what adults can.

      That being said… doesn’t a tall glass of Ice cold whole milk and a tray of oreos sound pretty good?
