Raw milk troubles

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that Jerry Dell Farm's raw milk has been taken off the market for now, and anyone who has some should discard it:

The New York State Department of Health received two reports of campylobacter enteritis from people who had consumed raw unpasteurized milk purchased from Jerry Dell Farm, 39 Fall Creek Road, Freeville. Both patients have recovered. Jerry Dell Farm has been operating with a state permit to legally sell unpasteurized milk at the farm....

The farm will be prohibited from selling raw milk until subsequent sampling indicates that the product is free of pathogens.

I've enjoyed their vegetables, but hadn't yet tried the milk.
