According to press reports, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is warning consumers who bought raw whole milk distributed by Bad Farm in Kempton, Berks County, that they should immediately discard the milk, which was sold in plastic half-gallons, gallons and pints with sell-by date of Aug. 23.
Tests completed during routine sampling indicated that the product tested positive for Campylobacter bacteria, a news release stated.
The milk, labelled Bad Farm, was sold at Emmaus Farmers Market, Lehighton Farmers Market, Trexlertown Farmers Market, and in Bad Farm’s on-site store and Wannamakers General Store, both in Kempton.
The product was voluntarily recalled and pulled from shelves by the distributor.
