I'm a contract hauler through Northwest Food Products LLC.. It was a driver of mine. Load was rejected at plant, which then needs to be disposed of. The lab at Foremost Farms, Marshfield, WI where the milk was delivered. I do not believe the acid was that high in the first place. Milk at 56 degrees will not spoil in a 8 hour period. They just did not want to cool it down. I met with NFPT this morning, he informed me that Foremost Supervisor did not tell him to load the milk. They are saying they figured it was already on the truck when the driver called. Which it was not. Once the milk is on the truck
it is our responsibilty. That is why I had the driver call the plant. Which now they are saying we did not go through proper channels.
