It's three strikes for the Organic Pastures Dairy near Kerman, Calif., after routine testing by the California Department of Food and Agriculture reportedly found campylobacter in one of the dairy’s raw cream samples.

In response to the possible bacterial contamination, the dairy has recalled its Grade A raw whole milk, skim milk and raw cream with a code date of Sept. 13, according to the Fresno Bee in a report available here.

This is the third recall for the Fresno County dairy since 2011. Earlier this year, 10 customers were sickened by campylobacter bacteria found in the dairy’s raw milk, including a nine-month-old infant. No one was hospitalized in the outbreak. Last November, state officials recalled and quarantined raw milk from the dairy after E.coli sent three area children to the hospital.

Three "strikes" is the right term. The CA Health Department has been striking at McAfee relentlessly. They usually don't find anything. Key phrase in this is that no one was hospitalized. Leave the guy alone.
