'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

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.
