Rise in Illnesses Tied to PA Farm’s Raw Milk

State health officials say the number of people stricken with illness after consuming raw milk from a south-central Pennsylvania dairy has risen to 43 in four states.

Officials say confirmed cases of Campylobacter infection include 36 people in Pennsylvania, four in Maryland, two in West Virginia, and one in New Jersey.

Health officials said last week that consumers should discard raw milk purchased since the start of the year from the Family Cow farm in Chambersburg in Franklin County.

Meanwhile, the state Agriculture Department said the farm passed a final inspection late Monday afternoon and has been cleared to resume production and bottling of raw milk.

The owners earlier issued a statement of apology, saying the illnesses have made them “sick at heart and spirit.”
