Umpqua Dairy is recalling milk, half-and-half, cream, buttermilk and fruit juice after finding salmonella on processing equipment at its Roseburg facility.
Customers should dispose of open products purchased on or before August 16, or return unopened products for a refund.
The recall stems from multiple salmonella cases that were reported to the Oregon Public Health Division between October 2009 and earlier this month. In all, public health officials identified 23 salmonella cases that originated from contact with Umpqua Dairy products.

Officials believe people came in contact with the salmonella from the exterior of the product packaging.
