Salmonella-related milk recalls announced
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced five more recalls due to the possible contamination of two years of products made by a milk cooperative.
The Plainview Milk Products Cooperative in Plainview, Minn., late last month recalled their instant non-fat dried milk, whey protein, fruit stabilizers and gums (thickening agents) because they might be contaminated with salmonella bacteria.
