UK -53 possible cases of food poisoning from contaminated milk sold by Cumbrian farm

News and Star

More cases of food poisoning have been confirmed after a Cumbrian farm was banned from selling contaminated milk.

In December, Low Sizergh Barn Farm, near Kendal, was banned from selling raw milk from a vending machine after it was found to contain traces of campylobacter bacteria.

A South Lakeland District Council spokesman said: “The number of cases at the moment is 12 confirmed and 53 probables.”

The spokesman said cases were only confirmed after a person had their suspected food poisoning confirmed by a GP.

A Food Standards Agency spokesman said: “Low Sizergh Barn Farm in Kendal voluntarily stopped sales of raw cow’s drinking milk and displayed a product recall notice at the point of sale.
