FARMINGTON — Whole milk produced by a local farm market is being recalled because of concern it may not have been pasteurized properly, state health officials said in a release Monday.

Sandy River Farm Market on Farmington Falls Road, which is U.S. Route 2, is recalling whole milk sold to retail customers at the market and Trantens market on Main Street in Farmington “out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of its customers,” said the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry in a news release Monday morning.

“No illnesses have been reported, and the processor is cooperating with the recall,” the department said in a written statement.

The recall was based on the department’s routine product testing that determined the whole milk did not achieve proper pasteurization during processing and could have allowed pathogens to survive in the product, the Department said.

Milk subject to the recall bears a code 11-14 on the cap. It was sold in pints, half gallons and gallons.

“Customers are urged to discard or return to point of purchase any remaining product with the code of 11-14,” the department said.

Owners of the Sandy River Farm Market didn’t immediately return a call Monday seeking additional comment.
