The plant license for Homestead Creamery in Jamesport has been reinstated. Their ability to sell milk products was temporarily suspended just over a week ago after preliminary test results indicated a batch of their Flory’s Favorite cheese was contaminated and could produce E. coli.
The facility was reinspected on Tuesday and a reinstatement was issued. Customers who purchased the product that was voluntarily withdrawn should discard of it or return it to the point of purchase.
The cheese was sold at the facility itself and may have also been available at the following retail locations:
Hy-Vee in Liberty, MO
Hy-Vee in Trenton, MO
Benedict Builders’ Farm in Knob Noster, MO
Milton Creamery in Milton, IA
