2012 Campylobacter Linked to consumption of Unpasteurized Claravale Farm Dairy Products, California

Raw milk, raw nonfat milk, and raw cream produced by Claravale Farm of San Benito County, California, were recalled by the state of California on March 23, 2012. The recall resulted from an investigation into an outbreak of Campylobacter associated with using unpasteurized dairy products and a preliminary identification of Campylobacter in Claravale Farm raw cream. Claravale was a state-licensed, raw milk dairy in California. No illnesses were ever definitively attributed to the dairy. On March 30, the quarantine was lifted.
