MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin officials have penalized a dairy farm blamed for a raw-milk illness that sickened players and coaches from the Durand High School football team last fall.

State Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection officials said Thursday the farm owners, Roland and Diana Reed of Arkansaw, have agreed to the penalties.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1LiKIwX ) reports the farm’s Grade-A milk production permit, which allows a farmer to sell milk for drinking purposes, will be suspended for 30 days. But the farm will be allowed to sell its milk for cheese and butter production during that time.

Officials say the Reeds supplied unpasteurized milk at a football team dinner where 32 Durand High School students and coaches were sickened in September.

Diana Reed declined comment to The Associated Press Thursday.
