The Missouri Milk Board on Tuesday reinstated the plant permit for the Shatto Dairy of Osborn, Mo., after tests indicated production was within the standard for Grade “A” pasteurized milk.
The dairy last week pulled seven products from 70 stores after routine state tests on Aug. 6 indicated levels of residual phosphatase above the standard.
Shatto responded that it had never had any problems with pasteurization and suggested the test readings were in error.
The Milk Board said new test results indicated the milk met the standard. But it said consumers in Kansas and Missouri who may have products included in the recall should discard them. The code dates for the recalled products are Aug. 17. 19, and 20. A list of the products is at mda.mo.gov
Shatto said it brought in the manufacturer of the pasteurizer, who made a few adjustments to the machine before new samples were provided to the Milk Board on Monday.
“All varieties of Shatto Milk are perfectly safe to consume and enjoy,” the company posted on its Facebook page Tuesday. “Shatto Milk is being bottled today and should arrive on local store shelves early tomorrow morning if not later this evening.”
