(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.) – The State Milk Board, in conjunction with the Missouri Department of Agriculture and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, announced today that Ozark Mountain Creamery of Mountain Grove, Mo. is voluntarily recalling some of its milk from the marketplace.


Test results received today, October 18, were positive for high residual phosphatase. High levels of residual phosphatase may indicate potentially unpasteurized or improperly pasteurized milk, which can contain harmful pathogens.  The sample was collected October 14 during a randomly scheduled, routine inspection and tested in the St. Louis County Health Department Laboratory.


The 500 gallons of recalled milk is packaged in one-half gallon, glass bottles and marked with the code ’10/24.’ The milk was bottled October 7, 2013. The recall does not include any other dairy products from Ozark Mountain Creamery.
