I have no interest in drinking raw milk myself but since it comes up around here I thought I'd post. In OR, it's legal to sell raw milk at farms but not retail stores (this milk came from farms)
UNDATED -- The number of children sick from a strain of E. coli distributed in Oregon has climbed to 10, with one adult also now sick.
Originally Oregon health officials were investigating four E. coli cases. They said it may be connected to a Clackamas County farm that distributes raw milk.
The Oregon Public Health Division reports that four children under the age of 15 have been diagnosed with E. coli, three of whom have been hospitalized. All four reportedly drank unpasteurized milk from Foundation Farm.
Two of the patients have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure. Other customers of the farm have also reported cases of diarrhea and ôsymptoms typical of E. coli,ö the health division said in a press release.
