St. John Creamery Recalls E. coli Tainted Raw Milk
A Washington creamery is recalling raw goat milk marketed for humans and pets because of possible E. coli contamination.
St. John Creamery of Lake Stevens, Wash., is recalling both refrigerated and frozen raw goat milk sold in various-sized containers with brown caps. The product was sold in western Washington with sell-by dates of July 29 and later.
The recall was initiated after routine sampling by Washington state agriculture officials. The milk can be returned to the store for a refund.
The company says it does not know of any human or pet illnesses associated with their products. E. coli can cause serious illness.
An investigation into the cause of the contamination is ongoing.
