The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture warns that consumers should immediately discard raw goat milk sold from Dove Song Dairy due to possible contamination with Campylobacter.
According to the Department of Agriculture, three people who consumed the product became ill with campylobacteriosis and were reported to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Raw milk samples tested by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture are presumptively positive for Campylobacter.
Dove Song Dairy raw goat milk was sold in plastic containers of various sizes (gallon, ½ gallon, quart, and pint) at the following locations:

The Department of Agriculture says all sell-by dates of raw goat milk from Dove Song Dairy should be discarded.
People with Campylobacter infection usually have diarrhea (often bloody), fever, and stomach cramps. Nausea and vomiting may accompany the diarrhea. Symptoms usually begin two to five days after infection and last about one week. Anyone who consumes the raw goat milk should consult their physician if they become ill.
