Company Announcement

Today the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets alerted consumers to a pasteurization problem with one of Sprout Creek Farm's pasteurized cow's milk cheeses, "Margie," made on 8/28/2018. Sprout Creek Farm is located in Poughkeepsie, NY.

The reason for the recall is the air temperature at the start and end of the pasteurization process is required to be above 150deg F per the Grade "A" Pasteurized Milk Ordinance; the batch in question did not meet that standard. The recall pertains only to "Margie" cheese with a Made Date of 8/28/2018 and Best By date of 11/12/2018. To date, no illnesses have been reported to the Department in connection with this product.
