I am having a hard time keeping up on the outbreaks and recalls related to raw milk products. Estrella in the last week and Bravo Farms this week. I certainly need to update our table of outbreaks and recalls related to both raw and pasteurized milk products, but I am about to board a plane to China. Clearly, however, I need to hire a new associate or two – perhaps with dairy backgrounds.
10 raw dairy outbreaks with 105 illnesses
1 queso fresco Mexican-style cheese outbreak with 5 illnesses
3 sporadic illnesses from illegal Mexican-style cheese Recalls
5 raw dairy recalls (3 raw milk, 2 raw cheese)
3 queso fresco cheese recalls
