Be careful if you bought unpasteurized raw milk from Churchtown Dairy in Hudson. It could be contaminated with listeria.
New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Commissioner Richard Ball put out a warning about the milk on Wednesday. He says recent samples of the milk tested positive for listeria monocytogenes. That can cause listeriosis, which could be fatal for the young, the elderly, and patients with cancer. For others, it can cause flu-like symptoms. So far, no one has been reported sick.
The producer is now banned from selling the milk until more testing is done and the results come back free of harmful bacteria.
Anyone who bought the milk should throw it out and call (518) 851-2042.
