Recall Of Devon Dairy Products

People are being told to dispose of the milk or cream products immediately following concerns over contamination.

the message is not to consume milk and cream products from one dairy company in Devon.

Public health officials say pasteurised milk at Dunn's Dairy in Drewsteignton was found to be contaminated.

Milk samples were taken from the dairy at Beacon View Farm by West Devon's Environmental Heath Officers.

The results have raised concerns about the potential of either insufficient heat processing or cross contamination of the milk at the plant.

They supply milk to doorsteps and businesses in West Devon, Teignbridge, Exeter, Mid Devon and Torbay.

Peter Wearden, Divisional Environmental Health Officer from West Devon Borough Council, says;

"We must be satisfied that the products can be produced safely before we allow future sales and we are continuing our investigations.

"We have coordinated a county-wide investigation working with district council officers across Devon and we have also been in discussions with the Food Standards Agency."

Supply has been halted whilst further investigations continue and any produce has been recalled.

The dairy is not to be confused with Dunn's Dairy of Underdown Farm, Exbourne.

Consumers should note the milk mark on the bottle is 'UK DE 008 EC', the label colours may vary depending on the type of milk and product.
