Ohio Cow Share Program Unpasteurized, Raw Milk 2006

Three members of a cow-share program in Darke County, Ohio, were infected with Campylobacter. All three drank whole, unpasteurized milk from the dairy, and this was determined to be the cause of their illnesses. The health department investigated the outbreak after a four year-old and 63-year-old both presented at local hospitals with the same Campylobacter strain. The state of Ohio revoked the license of the dairy. Farmers in Ohio were prohibited from selling raw milk for human consumption.
