OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Health officials say at least 45 people have come down sick after consuming raw milk products from a Weber County dairy.

Officials from the Utah Department of Health say they’ve received nearly three dozen reports of campylobacter infections, which cause diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting and other symptoms.

All cases have been linked to the Ropelato Dairy, where raw milk samples tested positive for the bacteria. The dairy’s license to sell unpasteurized milk was suspended on Aug. 4 pending an all-clear from inspectors.

People reporting the illness range in age from 2 to 74 years old, and started experiencing symptoms between May 9 and July 21.

Health officials urge consumers to be cautious with raw milk, which has not been pasteurized to remove potentially harmful bacteria.
