WACO (AP) – The Oak Farms Dairy plant in Waco is voluntarily recalling 64,000 units of milk distributed in 10 Texas cities.

Routine testing found Alkaline Phosphatase, an enzyme naturally present in raw milk, but not present in milk that has been sufficiently pasteurized. No illnesses have been reported.

The milk was distributed in San Antonio, Austin, Waco, Temple, Killeen, Hillsboro, Mexia, Wichita Falls, Lindale and Jacksonville through retailers, schools and food service settings.

The recall includes only half gallon plastic bottles of whole chocolate milk, half-pint paper cartons of whole chocolate milk, and half-pint paper cartons of 1 percent chocolate milk that carry the Oak Farms Dairy name and the plant code 48-3302. Packages are printed with a “BEST BY” or “SELL BY” date of March 22, 2011 (printed as MAR 22 on paper half pints, 03/22/11 on plastic half gallons) and a UPC code of 4127100724, 7002635006 or 7002635007. Only packages with the plant code 48-3302 are being recalled.

No other Oak Farms Dairy products are affected by this recall. Dallas and Houston are not affected.
