The quarantine order was issued after confirmed detention of Campylobacter jejuni in the farm’s packaged raw whole milk. It was sampled and tested by the California Department of Food and Agriculture.

The recalled raw milk is distributed in one gallon (128 oz) plastic jugs with the labels “Valley Milk Simply Bottled Raw Milk” and “DESI MILK Raw Milk.” Consumers are strongly urged to dispose of any of this product in their refrigerators that was purchased or received from June 19, 2020 through June 30, 2020, or any product that has a code date marked on the container of July 9, 2020 or earlier.

The government found Campylobacter bacteria in a routine sample collected at the Valley Milk Simply Bottled production and packaging facility. No illnesses have been reported to the state of the company to date.

Campylobacter causes the most foodborne illness infections in the country. Symptoms of campylobacteriosis include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever that  begin about 2 to 5 days after exposure to the pathogen. While most people who contract this illness recover, in some people a life threatening addiction can be caused. Some people also develop a rare disease called Guillian-Barre syndrome that can cause weakness and paralysis several weeks after the initial illness.

If you drank this milk and have been experiencing those symptoms, see your doctor. Otherwise, throw out the milk and wash your  hands with soap and water after handling it.
