Just days after officials in Pennsylvania urged customers to discard potentially contaminated raw milk from The Family Cow in Chambersburg, Pa., they are now warning about raw milk from another producer.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, customers and retailers are advised to dump raw milk purchased recently from Green Acres Jersey Farm in Lebanon, Pa. Officials report that laboratory tests confirmed Listeria monocytogenes in samples collected by the department.

The farm has been ordered to stop selling raw milk until further notice. Read the full release here.

While no illnesses have been reported at this time, pregnant women are especially at risk from Listeriosis. Along with typical flu-like symptoms, Listeriosis during pregnancy can also lead to miscarriage or stillbirth.
