Listeria Contamination Found in Products of Pennsylvanian Milk Farm

The US Food and Drug Administration officials have reported listeria contamination in the raw milk supplied by Miller's Organic Farm in Pennsylvania.

In 2014, two people, one from California and other from Florida were found to have contracted the listeriosis illness. Unfortunately, the person from Florida had died. The person has reportedly consumed raw milk bought from the dairy farm.

In January 2016, the FDA has found listeria samples in the chocolate milk products produced by the farm. After conducting tests, the strain was found to be similar to the one which the patient has previously succumbed.

Now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned consumers not to get raw milk from the farm. Health experts have been advising people to refrain from drinking raw milk as it is not subjected to pasteurization, a process that kills harmful bacteria present in milk.

"Because listeria was recently found in raw milk produced by Miller's Organic Farm, CDC is concerned that conditions may exist at the farm that may cause further contamination of raw milk and raw dairy products distributed by this company and make people sick," the CDC said in a statement.
