New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Commissioner Richard A. Ball on Friday warned consumers in Oneida County and the surrounding area not to consume unpasteurized, raw milk from Winters Grass Farm because of positive tests for Listeria contamination.

The Winters Grass Farm is on Butler Road in Sauquoit, NY.  The ag department did not yet know of any illnesses associated with raw milk from this farm as of Friday. But, one of its inspectors took a sample of the Winter Grass raw milk that has turned out to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
