A Mountain Grove firm is pulling some milk from the marketplace, state agencies announced Friday evening.

The State Milk Board, in conjunction with the Missouri Department of Agriculture and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, announced Friday evening that Ozark Mountain Creamery of Mountain Grove is voluntarily recalling some of its milk from the marketplace.

Test results received Friday 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 Oct, 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 Oct. 7, 2013. The recall does not include any other dairy products from Ozark Mountain Creamery.

The Missouri State Milk Board continues to review the company’s records to determine when consumers may have purchased the product.  Anyone who has purchased the milk may return the unused portion to the store from which they purchased the product.
