Attention hipsters, the raw milk you always talk about enjoying might be contaminated.
According to the Reading Eagle, “The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is warning consumers about possible Listeria contamination in raw milk from a Wayne County dairy.”
For those of you who don’t drink raw milk, the trendy milk variation is purported to have a wide variety of health benefits and be easier to digest.
“Today, raw milk refers to unprocessed, untreated milk straight from the cow. The milk you buy from the local supermarket nowadays is a different substance altogether. It has been pasteurized, ultra-pasteurized, or homogenized. This liquid is not really milk,” DrDeborahMD.com explains.
The batch of raw milk comes from a dairy, ironically named Gross Family Dairy in South Sterling.
No illnesses have been reported, but the dairy has been ordered to stop selling the raw milk until further testing clears them.
