CT Department of Agriculture update – Grade-A milk program

CT Department of Agriculture

We are suspending inspections related to the Grade-A milk program, in state producers of milk for pasteurization and in state milk processors. Our Retail Raw Milk program is not effected at this time.
FDA has agreed to extend the DFA BTU 09-904 milk sanitation rating due 4/8/2020 for 60 days to 6/8/2020.
While this is suspension is in effect, Department staff will remain in contact with their assigned farms and plants by phone.
As stated in our memo to the dairy industry, we will continue to respond to positive inhibitor reports, pasteurization re-sealing of regulatory seals and any report of illness or injury related to milk or milk products.
If you have any questions or need an in person service call please contact me (860.384.2598) or Doctor Sherman (860.384.2596) if I am not available with the details.
Stay safe
