Milk

Menands, NY-based Midland Farms is voluntarily recalling certain milk products because they may have been improperly pasteurized.

Pasteurization heats milk to eliminate pathogenic bacteria like listeria and salmonella.

The recalled products are sold in plastic containers and are marketed under the brand names Midland Farms, Corrado’s Market, Jersey Dairy Farms and Trade Fair Premium. Each has the plant code 36-1661 and a date code near the top of the container.

The recalled products were sold in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island.
