In breaking news this
evening, Connecticut state inspectors are
investigating raw milk from a Simsbury
dairy farm after reported illnesses. The State Department of Agriculture
is looking at whether the raw, unpasteurized milk from Town Farm Dairy on Wolcott Street is
responsible for making people sick after a number of illnesses have been
reported. The dairy has voluntarily shut down production and its store
while inspectors investigate.
We are also investigating a guillain-barre syndrome case from Crescent City, California
that was caused by a Campylobacter
infection induced by raw milk consumption. The victim has been
hospitalized on a ventilator now for 5 weeks.
