Raw milk is often contaminated with pathogenic bacteria, which are not killed because the milk is not pasteurized. This is not the first time raw milk has been recalled for Campylobacter in Pennsylvania. In 2012, Family Cow dairy sold raw milk contaminated with Campylobacter bacteria that sickened 81 people in the state’s largest raw milk outbreak in 20 years. Family Cow had another Campylobacter outbreak in 2013.
