The Pierce County Herald reports bacteria from raw milk served at a Raymond, Wisconsin school event was the reason 16 people became sick earlier this month.

A nearby dairy family whose children attend the school provided the raw milk. Lab tests showed a strain of bacteria found in stool samples of the sick individuals matched a sample of bacteria taken from a bulk tank at the farm.

The raw milk was not sold at the school and the dairy did not break any laws by supplying the drinks.
