5 Sickened by Raw Milk in Pennsylvania

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Allegheny County Health Department is advising consumers to discard raw milk sold under the label "The Family Cow" after it confirmed five cases of infection in people who consumed the product.

The health department says in a Wednesday release that the milk was produced by "Your Family Farmer" in Chambersburg and that tests confirmed Campylobacter contamination.

Most people who become ill from Campylobacter have diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain and fever two to five days after exposure.

The product was sold at seven locations in Allegheny County: Eichner's Family Farm in Wexford, East End Food Co-op in Point Breeze, and directly to consumers at five drop-off points.

The health department says the dairy has ceased production until further notice.
