A third person is diagnosed with a disease related to the E.coli bacteria, and state health officials suspect raw milk was the source.

Patsy Kelso, an epidemiologist for the state Health Department, says raw milk is the only link between the three cases in Orleans County, but that officials can't be sure since they didn't test any of the product.

Two of the three people ate ice cream made from raw milk at a picnic, and the third drank raw milk from the same producer.

In Vermont, farmers are allowed to sell small quantities of raw milk and raw milk products, but only on the farm. State health officials and the state Agency of Agriculture recommend that raw milk not be consumed.
