Shatto Milk production affected after pipe burst

OSBORN, Mo. — Many of you took to social media, wondering what happened to your favorite flavor of Shatto Milk. 

According to Barb Shatto, the recent cold snap is to blame for a water line break at the farm that caused a shortage of the company's flavored milk.

“It was a mess and it happened at 2:30 in the morning," said Shatto. "They called me. A guy came over to start processing the milk, and he said things aren’t good.”

An entire section of the farm was frozen, with water everywhere. Shatto said it halted the production of nearly ten thousand units. If you haven’t already, you’ll soon see the regular milk in stores. 

“It affected all our milk,” Shatto tells 41 Action News. "But we started back with our white milk first. We wanted to make sure everyone had milk for their cereal and those kinds of things.” 

Production is now underway for most of the flavored products. Banana and Cookies and Cream flavor are the last to go into production. The Shatto milk supply should be back to normal in a matter of days.
