2007 Outbreak of Campylobacter infections Linked to Pleasant Valley Dairy Unpasteurized, Raw Milk, Washington

In Washington state, four Whatcom County residents and one Skagit County resident tested positive for the same Campylobacter jejuni strain that was found in a routine sample of raw milk from Pleasant Valley Dairy. Subsequent to the outbreak, the dairy changed its testing procedures to reduce the risk of releasing contaminated milk to the public. The milk had been sold in the farm's store and at several local retail grocery stores.
