A western Colorado dairy has been ordered to stop distributing raw milk
after 11 people got sick.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has shut down
the Kinikin Corner Dairy LLC after 11 people were sickened by
campylobacter, a common food-borne bacteria. State authorities say at least
10 people who have gotten sick since March 10 reported drinking raw milk,
eight of them getting milk from Kinikin.
Raw milk is not pasteurized to kill disease, but many people prefer its
taste. Colorado health officials say they are contacting Kinikin's 200
cow-share customers. The dairy has been ordered to stop raw-milk
distribution until further notice.
