Milk, drink products safe, says dairy

Officials with Umpqua Dairy Products Co. say the company's fluid milk products are back on the shelves and safe to consume.

On Aug. 18, the company recalled certain milk and drink products sold in Oregon, southwest Washington and Northern California after a strain of salmonella bacteria that has sickened 23 people was linked to its milk plant.

The company says all fluid milk products in stores, such as milk, cream and buttermilk, have been manufactured in a different milk processing facility than the Roseburg, Ore. plant that was the focus of the recall.

Ice cream, sour cream and cottage cheese were not part of the recall.
