The California Department of Food and Agriculture has initiated a state-wide recall and quarantine of raw milk products from Organic Pastures Dairy. State officials have order the dairy’s products to be pulled from store shelves and are asking consumers to discard the products.
Owner Mark McAfee was also the subject of a recall in 2006 after four children became sick with E. coli bacteria, the Fresno Bee said.
“State health investigators found that the children, who live in Kings, Contra Costa, Sacramento and San Diego counties, had consumed one common food: raw milk from Organic Pastures Dairy,” the Bee said.
However, health inspectors found no traces of E. coli contamination at the dairy.
