USA – Pennsylvania officials urge consumers to discard raw milk – Listeria monocytogenes

Food Safety News

Consumers who have unpasteurized, raw milk from Pool Forge Dairy should immediately throw it out and monitor themselves and their children for symptoms of Listeria infection for the next 70 days.

Pennsylvania’s Department of Agriculture posted the warning Monday because routine tests by the department showed the milk to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. 

“Consumers who purchased raw, whole milk from Pool Forge Dairy between April 25 and May 7 should immediately discard it. The milk was sold in a plastic quart, half-gallon, and gallon containers with the Pool Forge label,” according to the notice from the agriculture department.

The dairy, which is Lancaster County, sold the implicated unpasteurized milk at the farm at 201 Bridgeville Road; Shady Maple Market at 1324 Main Street; and Hoover’s Farm Market at 1719 Main Street. All three locations are in East Earl Township in northeastern Lancaster County.
