Campylobacter Outbreak Traced to Organic Pastures Raw Milk Cream


The California Department of Public Health announced on May 10, 2012 that Organic Pastures brand raw milk, raw skim milk, raw cream and raw butter were being recalled and were subject to quarantine due to potential Campylobacter contamination.

Campylobacter is a foodborne pathogen that can cause severe diarrheal illness and sometimes complications such as reactive arthritis and guillain-barre syndrome, a form of paralysis.

Campylobacter found in Organic Pastures Raw Milk

The California Department of Food and Agriculture detected Campylobacter bacteria in a sample of raw cream produced by Organic Pastures Dairy. Consumers are urged to dispose of any Organic Pastures products remaining in their refrigerators. Retailers were asked to pull Organic Pastures raw milk products from their shelves to prevent the potential growth of the Campylobacter outbreak.

Campylobacter outbreak victims who consumed the Organic Pastures raw cream before becoming ill are from Fresno, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Louis Obispo and Santa Clara counties.
