§ 480.76. Emergencies and Equipment Failures on Market Milk Farm Tanks.
(a) When it is obvious that an emergency exists which could conceivably reflect significant temperature variations of the market milk in the farm tank, the producer should immediately notify the buyer and have the milk removed from the farm tank. Acceptance of subsequent milkings shall be based on the ability of the dairyman to meet the requirements of Section 35783 of the Food and Agricultural Code.
(b) When a lot of milk fails to meet the 50 degrees F. standard, the lot of milk may not be classified as market milk. Each lot shall be dealt with on an individual basis. If two of the last four lots fail to meet the 50 degrees F. requirement, the dairyman shall be put on notice by the milk inspection agency. If three of the last five lots of milk fail to meet the temperature standard, the dairy shall be degraded by the inspection agency to manufacturing status, and shall not be reinstated until two consecutive lots of milk meet the cooling standard.
