Raw Milk Causing Illness in East, Midwest and West

In breaking news this evening, Connecticut state inspectors are investigating raw milk from a Simsbury dairy farm after reported illnesses.  The State Department of Agriculture is looking at whether the raw, unpasteurized milk from Town Farm Dairy on Wolcott Street is responsible for making people sick after a number of illnesses have been reported.  The dairy has voluntarily shut down production and its store while inspectors investigate.

We are representing a young boy sickened with Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome by E. coli O157:H7 in Missouri.  Press reports – Raw milk thought to sicken one with E. coli O157:H7 in Missouri.  Radio station KSMU reports in this podcast that a local resident has contracted E. coli O157:H7 and that raw milk appears to be a risk factor.  Hear it all at KSMU News.

We are also investigating a guillain-barre syndrome case from Crescent City, California that was caused by a Campylobacter infection induced by raw milk consumption.  The victim has been hospitalized on a ventilator now for 5 weeks.

We are also continuing litigation on behalf of two children who suffered severe E. coli O157:H7 infections (HUS) after consuming raw milk products produced by Organic Pastures.
