If anyone is interested, here is the email Mark McAfee sent out to WAPF leaders, which my leader then forwarded to me:
To our dear friends and wonderful customers,
On Sept 21st Organic Pastures received word from the California Department of Food and Agriculture of possible bacterial contamination of our milk and milk products. As of 9/22 all pathogen tests by state investigators, outside labs and OPDC have proven negative for the suspected human pathogen Ecoli 0157-H7.
However, to ensure the absolute safety of our customers, OPDC is working in full cooperation with CDFA and has recalled all our products as a “precautionary action” until the state ( CDFA ) has had a chance to double check negative test results on all products. These products include:
We fully expect our products to be back on store shelves within four days. In the meantime, we urge all of our customers to follow the State's health departments recommendations. If you have recently purchased Organic Pastures products, you may return them to your retailer for a full refund.
Organic Pastures Dairy has rigorous safety and testing procedures in place to ensure the purity of our milk. We are confident that further investigation will prove Organic Pastures products to be safe. Until that time, we are cooperating to the fullest extent possible with the California Department of Food and Agriculture.
Thank you for your support and your thousands of emails containing your heart felt encouragement and gratitude. We are blessed to have such wonderful consumers.
I am sorry I can return all your emails…there are thousands. Please keep an eye on the website for updates and details.
Only living milk brings life!!
