They have a terminal in Clovis NM and haul milk out of this area. They always have adds in the paper and on the radio looking for drivers. It seams like they have a hard time keeping drivers. I am curious if anyone has heard good or bad info about this company or the terminal in Clovis. I would appreciate any info on them.

I highly doubt it. There is a culture in food grade companies that would not ever permit something lik this to happen. And very rarely will a food grade producer load your trailer without the wash ticket that proves that the trailer has been cleaned. No tickee, no shirtee!!!
I can't imagine a company taking that sort of risk, since if there is a food contamination, the total costs can run up into millions of dollars easily.
Could there have been a screwup and this happened? Yes, but I can't see it being done intentionally.
I can't see an intentional dirty load either. A mistake, okay. But this is a company who runs out of FL and that state has checks on so much of its agriculture products it seems completely unreasonable for a successful company to do anything like this.
