Dairy Laboratory

What We Do...

Several state laws promulgate the inspection and collection of dairy samples for analysis. Soft-service ice cream samples are collected after inspection of manufacturing sites within WV and tested for sanitary conditions. The laboratory receives frozen desserts and dairy product samples for coliform bacterial and standard plate counts from facility inspections. Other fluid milk in packaged form and other dairy products are collected from retail sites or under contract testing. They are tested for compliance to their labeling of milk fat.

We analyze samples related to Consumer Complaints
