Dean Foods Co.'s website last month had a message for displaced Brown's Dairy employees advising them on whom to contact about receiving their paychecks and for information about their employment at the New Orleans dairy.
The message included a new phone number for Brown's. The 100 year-old dairy serves four Gulf states-Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida-that were hit by the devastating storm last month. The main plant in New Orleans, is located on Baronne Street, between Storyville and the Garden District. Dean Foods has made no comment on how the operations were affected.
