Raw milk from Franklin County's Family Cow should be discarded

| Friday, Jan. 27, 2012

Anyone who has purchased raw milk from The Family Cow -- a farm in Franklin County that distributes its product in the Pittsburgh area -- should discard any milk purchased since Jan. 1 because of fears it could be tainted, the Pennsylvania Department of Health announced late this afternoon.

The health department said it has confirmed six cases of Campylobacter infection in those who drank unpasteurized ?milk from The Family Cow, which sells milk at The East End Food Co-op in Point Breeze and Rosary Acres in Ligonier.

The farm also has drop points for consumers to pick up milk in Bethel Park, Cranberry, Frazer, Green Tree, Ross and Swissvale.

The Department of Agriculture is awaiting test results from milk samples before deciding if a formal recall is required. The farm has voluntarily suspended raw milk production.
