Salmonella outbreak linked to raw milk in Utah

A recent outbreak of Salmonella Newport which sickened at least six people, including a two-year-old, has been linked to unpasteurized milk sold at Real Foods stores in Orem and Heber City, Utah.

Utah County Health Department spokesman Lance Madigan told Deseret News,

"The public health view is that there is no such thing as safe unpasteurized milk. It comes straight from the cow and is loaded with bacteria. Some of that will be just fine, and sometimes there will be something like salmonella, E. coli or listeria."
