CHARLESTON, WV (WOAY) – A Virginia based creamery, Homestead Creamery of Wirtz, VA, is voluntarily recalling glass bottled products due to a suspected issue with the bottle sanitizing process.

Recalled products were distributed to Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and New York starting on October 15, 2020 through retail stores, direct delivery and wholesale distributors.
