Product recall on raw milk for 7 states, including Ohio

Thousands of people are at risk of infection after a contamination issue hit seven different states. Raw milk from one state has been linked to illnesses in six others, including Ohio, after Brucella bacteria was found in the drink, resulting in a product recall. It is currently illegal to sell raw milk across state lines. Raw milk is milk that has not been pasteurized.

A doctor from the leading investigation group of brucellosis from the Centers for Disease Control stated that anyone who may have ingested this milk should be tested for this bacteria as soon as possible. Even those people who do not yet have symptoms could develop a chronic infection at a later time that could adversely affect their health years down the road. The milk is known as K Bar milk and comes from the K Bar Dairy in another state.

The initial signs of brucellosis include flu-like symptoms such as sweats, fever, fatigue, aches, and pains. For those who go untreated, the bacteria can cause long-term issues such as heart problems, arthritis, enlarged liver or spleen, nervous system issues and more. Those who are pregnant or have weakened immune systems are especially susceptible to the bacteria.

Anyone who has suffered illness or injury because of a defective product may choose to speak with a personal injury attorney. When a product recall is issued in Ohio, or in other states, it often means that a product has been found to have caused harm or is at risk for doing so. A personal injury attorney can help the injured victims seek compensation for medical bills, time lost from work and other financial damages caused by a defective product.
