The York Daily Record in Pennsylvania reported Sunday that Stump Acres Dairy has stopped giving away raw milk after some customers became sick and were diagnosed with salmonella this month, marking the third time this year that the North Codorus Township dairy has stopped selling or giving away raw milk because of customers becoming ill.
In April when the dairy suspended raw milk sales for the second time in a month under the advice of the Pennsylvania Department of Health, which warned that the milk might be associated with a case of gastrointestinal illness, co-owner Glendora Stump was quoted as telling the York Dispatch, "The Lord takes care of us. I’m not afraid to sell my milk. I know it’s not what they think it is."
Yesterday however, Terry Stump, the son of the dairy owner, was cited as saying Stump Acres hasn’t sold raw milk for about two months, but the dairy has given it away to people who ask for it, adding, "We will not be giving it away. Nobody wants to see anybody getting sick."
