WIRTZ, Va. – Fans of this local brand should check their refrigerators for any of the vintage-style company’s glass-bottled products.

Homestead Creamery voluntarily issued a recall on glass-bottled products due to “a suspected issue with the bottle sanitizing process,” according to a news release from the company.

Marketing Director Rose Jeter said the glass-bottled products in question may have a strong sanitizer odor which may affect the taste and quality of the product.
