In another frenzy by freaked out regulators, the California Dept of Food and Agriculture recalled raw milk products from Organic Pastures Dairy Co. in Fresno, after five children became ill and admitted to drinking raw milk from OPDC. Tests confirmed, however, that the products did not contain the variety of E. coli known as O157:H7 from which the children suffered.
“Each month [the California Dept of Public Health] tests all Organic Pastures’ products for pathogens,” explained owner Mark McAfee in a public statement. “In addition, Organic Pastures uses a third party for pathogen testing multiple times per week. All these tests have been negative.”
