Dairy Testing

Mission

To assure the safety of dairy products produced in Rhode Island by testing dairy products for microbiological contaminants, proper pasteurization and drug and antibiotic residues.

What we do

  • Determine that dairy products are properly pasteurized when sold in-state or distributed to other states for consumption or further processing
  • Microscopically examine milk samples to be sure they are produced from healthy cows (somatic cell count).
  • Analyze dairy products for pasteurization, bacterial contamination, drug and antibiotic residues.

Accomplishments

  • Certified by the FDA to analyze Rhode Island and other state dairy products for its Interstate Milk Shippers List Program.
  • Evaluates "in-house" milk testing done by dairies in Rhode Island.
