Wesley Lindquist Unpasteurized, Raw Milk Cheese Curds 2006

An outbreak of Campylobacter was associated with the consumption of raw milk cheese curds. The cheese curds were made in an unlicensed facility by an unlicensed cheesemaker in Ashland County, Wisconsin. Apparently the cheese curd had been a "long standing tradition" in the county. Ill persons resided in several Wisconsin counties and six other states.
