Suspension of Meadow Gold Dairies milk lifted
HONOLULU — The Hawaii State Department of Health lifted the suspension of Meadow Gold Dairies’ two-percent reduced fat milk products Tuesday.
Samples of two-percent 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 Hawaii Administrative Rules and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Pasteurized Milk Ordinance.
Meadow Gold milk on Kauai was OK for consumption despite the Feb. 27 suspension.
All other milk products from Meadow Gold Dairies have met state and federal standards required for distribution and sale.
