Milk and dairy products are among the most highly regulated foods available. Milk and dairy foods are subject to up to 17 government required or voluntary industry safety checks from the farm to the table.
The dairy industry takes food safety and security very seriously. The industry is committed to security and safety, and continually evaluates the milk supply chain to keep America's milk supply safe. Throughout the years, dairy farmers and processors have worked closely with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and state regulatory officials to establish safety regulations and practices.
