Inadequate pasteurization is prompting a recall of dairy products from a Pennsylvania producer.

JRZ Dairy is recalling its Low Fat Yogurt and Whole Milk Yogurt products. Inadequate pasteurization can allow for the survival of pathogens, which may cause serious or fatal infections after consumption. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recalled yogurt is sold under the Puredesi, Puredahi, and Patidar brand names. A sell-by date of 05/08/2016 or 05/12/2016 can be found on the packaging.

Consumers could purchase the affected items at retail locations in central New Jersey. Pure Dairy Products is working with JRZ Dairy to recover the products.

The problem was discovered upon review of process charts. Process temperatures were appropriate, but the required minimum process time was not met.

Consumers should return any of the affected yogurt products to the place of purchase for a full refund or exchange.

Customers with questions about this recall can contact Pure Dairy Products by phone at (630) 337-0914 or by email at puredairyproducts@gmail.com.
