HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Meadow Gold Dairies can resume sales of 2 percent milk, the state has announced.

Last month, the state Health Department ordered Hawaii's only large-scale milk processor to stop selling 2 percent milk over concerns about bacteria contamination.

Meadow Gold Dairies got a cease-and-desist order after lab results from milk samples showed higher-than-allowable limits of the Coliform bacteria. 

On Tuesday, the state lifted the suspension and said Meadow Gold can resume production, sales and distribution of 2 percent milk.

The state said samples of 2 percent milk taken from the Meadow Gold milk plant in Honolulu on March 1, 2, and 6 were found in compliance with Coliform counts.

The Meadow Gold milk plant in Honolulu was also inspected on March 1 in response to the Feb. 27 suspension and was found to be in "substantial compliance" with state and federal rules.
