O.C. Kids Sick After Drinking Fancy, Unpasteurized Raw Goat Milk: LAist

Public health officials told the OC Register that the children got campylobacteriosis infection from Claravale Farm’s raw goat milk. Even one of the kids had to be hospitalized. The symptoms aren’t pleasant: they include diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain, vomiting and fever. And people usually get the symptoms within two to five days of getting in contact with the organism. The illness is often associated with unpasteurized dairy products and water, and mostly affects young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

It’s not just the SoCal kids, though, who were affected by the farm’s raw milk. Six NorCal folks were diagnosed with the sickness in March after drinking raw milk from the same Paicines farm, according to Free Lance, a San Benito County news site. After the state investigated Claravale Farms, they forced the owners to do a mandatory recall, telling everyone to get rid of all Claravale Farms products with the “March 28” expiration date.

  1. I and my kids have drunk raw unpasteurized milk and cream from a local farm.
    If the cows are checked properly,no problem. Pasteurized milk is not good for you. Always two sides to every story…best tell both sides.

  2. These were goats but no matter, even the most careful farmer can make mistakes. Pasteurized milk may not be as nutritious but is safer. Grown mammals don’t need milk anyhow.

  3. I know grown mammals don’t need milk. I don’t drink it .I just liked cream in my real coffee. I don’t do safe. Still here.
