Dear Customers and Friends,
As of today, August 30th, 2010, we at Morningland Dairy are working with the Missouri State Milk Board and the FDA to clarify reports of contaminated cheese samples being discovered in California. At present, we have not received any official notice of the codes found on the samples so that we can identify the dates they were made.
We are also presently testing cheese samples through a St. Louis, MO laboratory to confirm the quality of our cheeses. According to the lab, we should have the test results by Monday, Sept. 6, 2010.
In our 30 years of production there have been no reports of illness connected with eating our cheeses, but we are being requested by the FDA to recall all of our cheese sold since January 1st, 2010. We are complying with that request. We ask that our customers return their cheese or refrain from consumption while we diligently investigate this matter.
We are concerned for you, our customers, and we apologize for the inconvenience and the concern you must be feeling. We ask for your prayers, your patience, and your continued support as we strive to continue to provide a healthy, high-quality, artisan raw milk cheese.
Joseph, Denise, Jedadiah and the Morningland Dairy employees and families
