Swan Bros. Dairy Raw Milk Campylobacter Outbreak, Recall

Ten people in Oklahoma are sick after drinking Swan Bros. raw milk that was contaminated with Campylobacter. The Claremore-based dairy has issued a statewide recall for the milk. Consumers who have purchased raw milk products between April 9 and June 22 should not drink it as Campylobacter can cause serious illness.

The recalled products, sold directly from the dairy, include raw whole milk, raw 2% milk and raw skim milk sold in plastic half-gallons, gallons, and pints and raw heavy cream sold in pints.

What is Campylobacter?

Campylobacter is a bacteria found in the intestines of animals. Meat can become contaminated with this bacteria during slaughter, milk can become contaminated with feces during the milking process. Pasteurization kills Campylobacter and other harmful bacteria, but because raw milk is not pasteurized, these bacteria can survive and cause illness.

Symptoms of a Campylobacter infection, called campylobacteriosis, include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. A small percentage of people with campylobacteriosis develop a complication called Guillain-Barré syndrome, a severe illness that can lead to paralysis and death.
