According to press reports, Dungeness Valley Creamery is voluntarily pulling its milk products from store shelves again after a state Department of Agriculture sample found Escherichia coli bacteria, E. coli, in raw milk dated June 5.
Creamery co-owner Ryan McCarthey said Wednesday that they learned Tuesday about the sample and notified vendors to pull their raw milk, skim milk and cream with expiration dates of June 5-14.
State health officials urge customers not to drink or eat the product.
McCarthey said other state samples with expiration dates on June 2 and June 4 along with independent lab testing results of products expiring June 7, 10, 11 and 12 were found clear of E. coli.
The Creamery was previously given an all-clear in its samples April 22, after E. coli was found in two separate samples from late March and early April leading to an extended recall in April which owners said cost them tens-of-thousands of dollars.
