SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- A class-action lawsuit says an Oregon creamery association falsely advertises the source of its milk.

The Statesman Journal reported Monday that the lawsuit was filed Monday by the Animal Legal Defense Fund against the Tillamook County Creamery Association in western Oregon.

The lawsuit by the California-based organization says most of the association's milk comes from land in Boardman owned by Threemile Canyon Farms rather than from cows grazing on small family farms.

The complaint says the association's dairy products are "made from milk from the largest industrial dairy in the country that confines tens of thousands of cows on concrete."

An association representative says it "adamantly disagrees with the allegations made in the lawsuit."

The association is owned by about 80 families.
