Ludwig Dairy Recalls Products Due to Pasteurization Problems

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on September 2, 2011

An Illinois dairy that distributes items in-state as well as to outlets in Indiana, New Jersey and New York is recalling all products due to problems with the firm’s pasteurizing equipment, report news sources.

Ludwig Dairy is recalling items sold under its own name as well as a yogurt drink sold under the brand name Nuestro Queso due to a pump that failed to perform as expected. The pump is supposed to halt the production of raw milk in the event that there is a problem in the system. The pump did not function as expected; as a result, raw milk may have mixed with pasteurized milk. There have been no reported illnesses in connection with the issue.

Anyone who has purchased Ludwig-brand products is urged to dispose of the products.

Pasteurization is a process that involves heating milk in order to kill illness-causing bacteria that may be present in the milk. Infection by bacteria in raw milk and products made with raw milk like cheese and yogurt can cause diarrhea, vomiting and stomach cramping. More serious symptoms, that are less common include paralysis, kidney failure and chronic disorders.

Being a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, consumer health is something that I am very conscious of; I hope no one has been sickened by consuming the recalled dairy products. Because of my experience as a product defect lawyer, I am aware that food borne illness can be serious, and in some cases fatal. I encourage anyone who is experiencing symptoms of infection from bacteria that may be found in raw milk to seek immediate medical attention.
