CDC Issues Health Advisory Alert for Miller’s Biodiversity Raw Milk due to Brucella

The CDC announced that the New York State Department of Health and Pennsylvania Department of Health is investigating Brucella RB51 exposures that may be connected to consuming raw (unpasteurized) milk from Miller’s Biodiversity Farm in Quarryville, Pennsylvania. This investigation is associated with the third known case of brucellosis from Brucella RB51 due to raw milk acquired in the U.S., since August 2017. This strain of Brucella is Rifampin/Penicillin resistant. A New York resident, who drank raw milk purchased from Miller’s Biodiversity Farm in Quarryville, Pennsylvania, was diagnosed with brucellosis in November 2018. Milk samples from the dairy tested positive for Brucella strain RB51. People who consumed raw milk or raw milk products from this dairy since January 2016 may have been exposed. In late December 2018, the Pennsylvania Department of Health quarantined that farm’s raw milk and raw milk products for possible Brucella contamination. @
