Health officials say two people in New Jersey have been sickened from drinking raw milk from a central Pennsylvania dairy connected to dozens of illnesses in four states.

The state Health Department says a 27-year-old man from Burlington County and a 3-year-old boy from Gloucester County became ill after consuming raw milk from the Family Cow Dairy in Pennsylvania.

The dairy in Chambersburg resumed bottling raw milk earlier this month after an 11-day shut-down following illnesses that were first reported in January.

In addition to New Jersey, authorities have confirmed cases of Campylobacter infection in people in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia.

Pennsylvania allows the sale of unpasteurized dairy products; New Jersey does not, although a bill has been introduced in the Legislature to legalize its sale.
