March 3, 2007: Risk of Salmonella Contamination in Pennsylvania Raw Milk

Yesterday, purchasers of raw milk from Stump Acres Dairy in New Salem (York County), Pennsylvania, were advised by the Pennsylvania Department of Health to immediately stop drinking the product because of possible Salmonella contamination.

“We are working very closely with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to conduct local public health investigations,” said Dr. Calvin B. Johnson, State Health Secretary. “If you have any raw milk from Stump Acres Dairy at home, do not drink the milk and immediately discard it.”

Two confirmed cases and one probable case of foodborne illness resulting from contact with Salmonella have been reported to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. In each case, the individual had drunk raw milk from Stump Acres Dairy. Milk is described as “raw” if it has not been pasteurized or homogenized.

Investigations at Stump Acres Dairy by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture have resulted in three milk cultures that are positive for Salmonella Typhimurium. A positive test also resulted from a milk sample taken from consumers.
Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain.

Anyone who has become ill after drinking raw milk from Stump Acres Dairy should contact a healthcare professional immediately and inform local and state health officials as well.
