Raw milk recalled after sampling reveals E. coli contamination: Washington

Williams Valley Family Farm LLC of Clayton, WA, recalls retail raw whole milk because of E. coli contamination. The recall was instated after routine sampling conducted by the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) exposed the presence of toxin-producing E. coli in the farm’s unpasteurized, raw milk dated Oct. 20-28.

There is concern that purchasers may have the milk in their homes because of the expiration date, which has not passed.

Recalled products:

  • Williams Valley Family Farm, LLC retail raw whole milk
  • The recalled product was bottled in gallon and half-gallon containers and was sold to customers in Eastern and Western Washington, including retail stores.

Consumers who have acquired the recalled products are recommended not to drink them and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Retail raw milk is legal to sell and buy in Washington State, but the potential health risks are serious.
