Raw Milk Recall Underway in WA

A regulated raw milk diary in Washington State Tuesday recalled its raw fluid milk because it may be contaminated with dangerous Escherichia coli bacteria (E. coli).

The recall came after the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) found raw milk at Jackie's Jersey Milk was contaminated with shiga toxin-producing E. coli. The dairy said it was fully cooperating with the WSDA in an investigation into the source of the problem.

Jackie's Jersey Milk, located near Bellingham, WA, reports it had one piece of equipment that was not functioning correctly.

No illnesses have been associated with the recall.

Diary farmers in Washington State may sell raw milk and consumers may purchase it, but only from WSDA-licensed operations. Consumers are warned to read labels on raw milk containers and ask retailers to be sure it is produced and processed under state regulation.
