Umpqua Dairy Milk Recall

I was just at Sherm's planning to buy a gallon of skim milk and, lo and behold, found out there was a recall of Umpqua Dairy brand and Sherm's brand (which also comes from Umpqua Dairy) milk about an hour ago.  The refrigerator cases were bare except for a few gallons of Organic Valley milk.  The stockboy was directing people to Fred Meyer or Safeway, as they carry their own brands of milk, which do not come from Umpqua Dairy.

You can read all the details on their website here, but this is what you need to know:

The voluntary recall affects the following products purchased on or prior to Monday, Aug. 16, 2010:
• milk, half-and-half and cream with an expiration date of Sept. 5, 2010 under the Umpqua Dairy, Cascade, Great Value, Lady Lee, Market of Choice and Sherm’s brand labels;
• buttermilk under the same brand labels with an expiration date of Sept. 10, 2010, or earlier;
• Umpqua Dairy brand gallon, quarts and pints of orange juice and fruit drink with an expiration date of Sept. 15, 2010, or earlier;
• and any fluid milk product stamped with a plant code 41-62.

Consumers should dispose of any remaining milk, orange juice or fruit drink, or return unopened products for a refund at the retail location of purchase. Ice cream and other dairy products, including sour cream and cottage cheese, are not being recalled. Umpqua Dairy has also established a toll-free hotline for questions and further information at (888) 672-MILK (6455); information is also available at
Note:  This is a voluntary recall.  I use Umpqua Dairy and Sherm's brand dairy products exclusively and will, of course, continue to do so in the future.  I'm sure they are doing everything possible to prevent this from happening again.
