MONTROSE, Colo. (AP) - A western Colorado dairy is back online after a bacteria outbreak last month prompted state regulators to suspend its raw milk distribution.

Kinikin Corner Dairy LLC owner Scott Freeman says distribution under the dairy's cow-share program - in which people own a share of a cow in return for the dairy products it produces - resumed about three weeks ago.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment ordered the dairy to stop distributing raw milk April 7, after at least 11 people got sick with campylobacter, a common food-borne bacteria. 8 of those people reportedly drank raw milk from Kinikin Dairy.

Health officials say subsequent inspections show the dairy is meeting enhanced sanitation requirements, and no further testing is planned.
