Consumers urged to dispose of raw goat milk due to antibiotic contamination
SACRAMENTO, April 16, 2021 – Raw goat milk produced and packaged by Claravale Farm of San Benito County is the subject of a statewide recall and quarantine order announced by California State Veterinarian Dr. Annette Jones. The quarantine order follows the confirmed detection of antibiotics in Claravale Farm’s raw goat milk in a routine inspection sample collected and tested by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA).
The recall order applies to “Claravale Farm Grade-A Raw Pure Goat Milk“ sold in glass bottles and marked with the code date “APR 24” on the bottle cap. The order does not include raw cow milk.
Consumers are strongly urged to dispose of any product remaining in their refrigerators, and retailers are to pull the product immediately from their shelves.
No illnesses have been reported. If an allergic reaction by those sensitive to antibiotics is suspected, consumers are encouraged to consult a physician immediately.
