An increase in people experiencing severe gastrointestinal symptoms has been linked to raw milk supplied by Kimberton Farms Dairy, according to a Chester County Health Department news release Dec. 10.

According to health officials, symptoms experienced by patients include g diarrhea, vomiting, bloody stool, and/or abdominal pain.

Kimberton Whole Foods, distributor, has removed raw milk products packaged by Kimberton Farms Dairy (also known as Camp Hill Village or Kimberton Hills) from its Kimberton and Downingtown stores.

There are inherent infectious risks associated with the consumption of raw milk.  According to USC professor, John Leedom, the list is a cornucopia of infectious agents: Salmonella species, Campylobacter species, Listeria monocytogenes, Brucella abortus, Brucella melitensis, Mycobacterium bovis, Tick-borne encephalitis, and Yersinia enterocolitica.

The Chester County Health Department is working with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, Pennsylvania Department of Health, and neighboring County Health Departments on this investigation.
