ATLANTA (AP) -- Seventy-five people in Wisconsin suffered severe diarrhea, fever and cramps after drinking unpasteurized milk.
The December outbreak of campylobacter jejuni was traced to an organic dairy farm with 36 cows in Sawyer County, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.
Because Wisconsin prohibits sales of unpasteurized milk to the public, the farm distributed the unpasteurized milk through a cow-leasing program in which people paid a fee for the milk.
In 1995, 28 states allowed the sale of unpasteurized milk, including California.
