REcall Roundup: Oak Farms Dairy and Cat Food

Sharing is caring!

Recall Roundup Time 🙁

Oak Farms Dairy in Texas is conducting a limited, voluntary recall of milk that was distributed in several Texas cities.

Products that are part of the milk recall were distributed in San Antonio, Austin, Waco, Temple, Killeen, Hillsboro, Mexia, Wichita Falls, Lindale and Jacksonville, Texas, and include:

  • Oak Farms Dairy 1/2 Gallon Plastic whole chocolate milk with plant code
    48-3302 and a Sell By date of 03/22/11
  • Oak Farms Dairy 1/2 Pint Paper whole chocolate milk with plant code
    48-3302 and a Sell By date of Mar 22
  • Oak Farms Dairy 1/2 Pint Paper 1% chocolate milk with plant code
    48-3302 and a Sell By date of Mar 22

Also note that Oak Farms Dairy milk that was sold in Dallas and Houston is not part of the recall.

Products that are a part of this milk recall were discovered to contain Alkaline Phophatase, which is naturally found in raw milk, and can be a sign that the milk wasn’t sufficiently pasteurized, and so may be contaminated with Salmonella, Campylobacter, Listeria, and/or E. coli. It is thought that about 64,000 units are a part of the milk recall, although it is important to note that no illnesses have been reported from this milk recall. The problem was discovered as a part of routine testing, not as the result of an outbreak of disease, and the recall is being conducted ‘out of an abundance of caution.’

If you have the recalled milk, you should throw it away and return the carton for a refund or to exchange it for a new carton of milk. Keep in mind that in addition to buying the recalled milk in a store, kids could have gotten the recalled milk at school or in other ‘food service settings.’

WellPet LLC is voluntarily recalling certain lots of Wellness canned cat food due to low thiamine levels.

The company discovered the low levels during independent testing conducted together with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in response to a single, isolated consumer complaint received by the FDA.

The lots involved in the recall are:

• Wellness Canned Cat Food (all flavors and sizes) with best by dates from 14APR 13 through 30SEP13;
• Wellness Canned Cat Food Chicken & Herring (all sizes) with 10NOV13 best by dates.

Consumers should stop feeding their cats the food from these lots. To arrange for a product return and reimbursement, call 877-227-9587, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. EST.
