Suspension Lifted on Meadow Gold 2% Reduced Fat Milk
The Hawaiʻi State Department of Health today lifted the suspension of Meadow Gold Dairies’ 2% reduced fat milk products. The company may now resume production, sale and distribution of 2% reduced fat milk.
Samples of 2% reduced fat milk taken from the Meadow Gold milk plant in Honolulu on March 1, 2, and 6 were tested and found in compliance with Coliform counts of less than 1/ml. The maximum allowed Coliform limit for pasteurized milk is 10/ml.
The Meadow Gold milk plant in Honolulu was also inspected on March 1 in response to the Feb. 27 suspension and was found to be in substantial compliance with Hawaiʻi Administrative Rules and the US Food and Drug Administration’s Pasteurized Milk Ordinance.
All other milk products from Meadow Gold Dairies have met state and federal standards required for distribution and sale.
