Minn. officials link illnesses to farm's raw milk

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota health and agriculture officials say at least six illnesses are linked to raw dairy products from a Cambridge area farm.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture issued a consumer advisory for anyone who may have bought raw milk from the Dennis Jaloszyski dairy farm. Officials say the raw milk should be thrown away.

The Minnesota Department of Health says the illnesses include three people with laboratory confirmation of a bacterium known as campylobacter. People with the illness had consumed raw milk from the Jaloszyski farm.

Inspectors visited the farm to determine how many customers were buying the milk to notify them of the outbreak, but the owner did not have a customer list.

Campylobacter can cause diarrhea, cramping and fever. A phone number for the farm could not be found.
