Wholesalers that produce dairy products can now offer a whole milk replacement product at lower cost to consumers who buy whole milk.
The dairy company Dairy One, which operates stores in New York City, Boston and Philadelphia, announced the product on Thursday.
The product is called Golden Milk.
The Golden Milk product is available in stores nationwide and at select dairy outlets.
The company says the product is formulated with probiotics to reduce the amount of dairy-related bacteria in the human gut, and that it can be used by people who are lactose intolerant.
The Golden Milk, which costs about $6.99 per package, will be available in grocery stores and online, according to Dairy One.
A spokesperson for the company said the company is testing the product and will have more information on how it works and what benefits consumers will be receiving once the product hits the market.
Dairy One’s announcement comes as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) are investigating a number of cases of outbreaks linked to the consumption of dairy products in the U.S.
The FDA has confirmed that it is investigating a case of the virus linked to human milk in the state of California, and the agency is also conducting a separate investigation into another outbreak linked to milk in Wisconsin.FDA spokeswoman Jennifer Oster told the Associated Press on Wednesday that the agency has received a number other reports of human milk contamination, and has opened an investigation into that outbreak.
“We are working with our partners to determine whether there are additional cases and how they came to be,” she said.
