The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is testing raw milk samples taken Friday and Monday. Results are expected later today or tomorrow. Even if Campylobacter is not found in the raw milk samples, it does not mean that the raw milk consumed by the 20 people sickened was not contaminated with Campylobacter. In addition, if Campylobacter is not found in the raw milk samples, there is still ample evidence of contamination on which to base a claim for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income and other damages.

In the past six years, there have been seven food poisoning outbreaks associated with drinking raw milk, 6 Campylobacter outbreaks and one Salmonella outbreak, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Almost 200 were sickened in these outbreaks. Our attorneys are representing one of them, a man who is now paralyzed from the neck down because his Campylobacter infection caused Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS).
