Due to E. coli Raw Goat Milk Recalled in Washington

St. John Creamery in Monroe announced on Thursday it is voluntarily recalling raw goat milk that may be contaminated with Escherichia coli (E.coli) bacteria.

A June 14 news release states the recall was initiated after “the presence of toxin-producing E.coli in retail raw goal milk dated 6/17” was discovered during routine sampling by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.

Included in the recall are half-gallon and one-pint containers of raw goat milk marked best by June 17-21.

Symptoms of E. coli infections include severe diarrhea, stomach cramps, bloody stool and, in some cases, hemolytic uremic syndrome.

“Anyone experiencing these symptoms should immediately contact a health care provider,” the new release states. “At this time, there are no known illnesses associated with the recalled product.”

Consumers are being asked to return their purchases for a full refund. These raw milk products were sold at various Western Washington retail stores, at the farm store (28408 Fern Bluff Road) and directly to customers via drop groups.
