Raw milk, raw skim milk (non-fat), raw cream and raw butter produced by Organic Pastures Dairy of Fresno County is the subject of a statewide recall and quarantine order announced by California State Veterinarian Dr. Annette Whiteford, a report from the California Department of Food and Agriculture said.

The quarantine order came following the confirmed detection of campylobacter bacteria in raw cream. Consumers are strongly urged to dispose of any Organic Pastures products of these types remaining in their refrigerators, and retailers are to pull those products immediately from their shelves.

From January through April 30, the California Department of Public Health identified at least 10 people with campylobacter infection who said they consumed Organic Pastures raw milk before their illness. They are residents of Fresno, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Luis Obispo and Santa Clara counties. There have been no deaths, and none were hospitalized.

According to CDPH, symptoms of campylobacteriosis include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. Most people with campylobacteriosis recover completely. Illness usually occurs 2 to 5 days after exposure to campylobacter and lasts about a week. However, in some persons with compromised immune systems, it can cause a serious, life-threatening infection.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
