State warns consumers to not drink Big Brook raw milk because of Listeria contamination

New York officials warn about contaminated raw milk from Big Brook Farm in Lee Center due to potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The State Agriculture and Markets Commissioner warns against consuming unpasteurized raw milk from the dairy. Laboratory tests confirmed Listeria monocytogenes presence in a raw milk sample, prompting the farm's prohibition from selling raw milk until new testing ensures its safety.

Consumers who purchased raw milk from Big Brook Farm should discard it and contact the farm at 315-266-7254. Located at 6063 Weaver Road in Lee Center, Big Brook Farm is under scrutiny following this incident.

In a separate case, Johannes Vulto, owner of Vulto Creamery LLC, entered a plea agreement related to a listeria outbreak resulting in hospitalizations and deaths. Vulto and Vulto Creamery admitted to shipping adulterated cheese across state lines, violating federal law.

Selling raw, unpasteurized milk across state lines is illegal, with health authorities cautioning against its consumption due to potential bacterial contamination like Listeria, E. coli, Salmonella, and Campylobacter.
