NASHVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — A West Michigan manufacturer is recalling dairy products that did not meet federal testing guidelines.

Nashville-based MOO-ville is voluntarily recalling eight types of milk distributed in the greater Grand Rapids, Battle Creek, Kalamazoo and Lansing areas. All of the recalled products have a best by date of Nov. 10 or Nov. 14.

The following products are included in the recall:

  • MOO-ville 2 percent Reduced Fat Cream Line Milk (gallon size plastic jugs)
  • MOO-ville Whole Milk (gallon and half-gallon plastic jugs)
  • MOO-ville 2 percent Reduced Fat Milk (gallon, half-gallon and pint jugs)
  • MOO-ville Skim Milk (gallon and half-gallon plastic jugs)
  • MOO-ville Chocolate Milk (gallon, half-gallon and pint jugs)
  • Horrocks brand Whole Milk (gallon plastic jugs) – sold only at Grand Rapids and Battle Creek stores
  • Horrocks brand 2 percent Reduced Fat Milk (gallon plastic jugs) – sold only at Grand Rapids and Battle Creek stores
  • Horrocks brand Skim Milk (gallon plastic jugs) – sold only at Grand Rapids and Battle Creek stores

MOO-ville says the recalled milk products were inadequately tested, as required by the federal pasteurized milk ordinance. However, no illnesses related to the recalled milk have been reported.

The state discovered the problem while reviewing MOO-ville’s records during a routine dairy plant inspection.

Consumers who purchased the recalled milk should return it to the store they purchased it from for a full refund or replacement. For additional information, contact Doug Westendorp at 269.838.7001.
