Milk and Milk Products Standards
Chapter 16-101 WAC
Washington State Department of Agriculture has been petitioned by two major dairy product producers and the Washignton State Dairy Federation to establish more stringent standards for somatic cell counts in milk from individual producers then the current standards established by FDA in the Grade A Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO). New stricter quality standards being implemented and proposed by global customers require milk and milk products produced in Washington State to meet these new standards. This request is to ensure continued sales in export markets for milk and milk products produced in Washington State.
