Raw milk sold under the label "The Family Cow" should be discarded because of potential bacterial contamination, the Allegheny County Health Department said today.

The milk is produced the "Your Family Farmer" dairy in Chambersburg and sold at seven locations in Allegheny County: Eichner's Family Farm in Wexford, East End Food Co-op in Point Breeze and directly to consumers at five drop-off points throughout Allegheny County.

The drop-off points are on McKnight Road in Ross in parking lot beside Jo Ann Fabrics, the parking lot behind Tony's Auto Center and South Hills Church of Nazarene in Bethel Park, Getz Memorial Park in Swissvale, the parking lot of Beth El Congregation in Green Tree and at Pittsburgh Mills in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

After a consumer complaint, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture collected raw milk from the dairy July 29 and confirmed positive test results for Campylobacter on Monday.

The state Department of Health has confirmed two people who drank raw milk from the dairy became infected with cases of Campylobacter, which produces diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain and fever two to five days after exposure.
