Dean Foods Issues Correction to Press Release Distributed by ARM

14 12 2017

DALLAS, Dec. 14, 2017 -- A press release and video were issued today by an organization called Animal Recovery Mission ("ARM") falsely stating that Dean Foods Company owns or controls McArthur Farms, a Florida dairy farm. We want to make it clear that Dean Foods does not own or control any dairy farms. While we proudly own the McArthur Dairy brand and dairy processing plant located in Miami, the "McArthur" name is totally coincidental. Dean Foods has no ownership interest and is in no way involved in the management of McArthur Farms. Any queries regarding McArthur Farms should be directed to McArthur Farms or the Southeast Milk Cooperative. However, we are still very engaged in the animal welfare issues highlighted in ARM's video because McArthur Farms is part of the Southeast Milk Cooperative ("SMI") and is consequently in our milk supply. Dean Foods is appalled at the behaviors shown in the video released by ARM. We believe that providing for the health and welfare of dairy...
