Ohio dairy farmers watching Goldfish, Ritz Cracker recalls closely

Neither are their owners, who have a close eye on the recent recall of Goldfish crackers, Ritz Crackers, and other products affected by salmonella contamination. That’s because a milk by-product is to blame for the contamination.

The government identified whey powder as the source of the salmonella. It was produced by Pinnacle Foods, of Fayettleville, Arkansas.

At the fair, dairy farmers said once they sell milk, what happens next is largely out of their control. But they recognize they are the first line of defense when it comes to food safety and are bound by many regulations and standards.

“The closer you are to following those things and bringing them to quality then its always a good thing for everybody,” said Bonnie Ayars who owns Ayars Family Farm in Mechanicsburg with her husband. They milk 90 cows daily, make their own ice cream, and sell milk to a cheese-maker.

That the contaimination originated far from Ohio is of no consollation to state industry leaders.

“It doesn’t matter where the occurance occurred, the fact is it was caught, they’re going to be able to get to the bottom of it, resolve the issue,” said Scott Higgins, CEO of American Dairy Association Midwest.
