HARRISBURG, Pa. – Consumers who have purchased raw milk from Fisher’s Dairy in Butler County, Pa., any time after April 9, 2007, should discard it immediately due to the risk of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
A preliminary test showed the presence of Listeria bacteria in some of the raw milk samples taken from Fisher’s Dairy during routine inspection, according to Pa. Agriculture Secretary Dennis Wolff.
If consumers have raw milk from this farm, they should discard it immediately.
There have been no illnesses reported because of the potential contamination, but if individuals who consumed the raw milk become ill, they are advised to consult their physician.
No sales for now. The department of agriculture has suspended sales of raw milk at the dairy. Multiple laboratory samples must come back negative before sales can resume.
