According to the FDA, while Brucella can cause anyone to become sick, pregnant women may suffer miscarriage and other serious pregnancy complications making it critical for pregnant women who may have consumed the Raw Milk from Udder Milk to seek medical care immediately.

Background:
In late September, a New Jersey woman became ill after drinking Raw Milk from the company. The CDC confirmed her illness was Brucella RB51 in late October. Because Udder Milk has not provided information about the farms that supply its Milk, it has not been possible to trace the source of the woman’s infection. CDC scientists have been collaborating with state health officials on the investigation. The US Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) and the US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) are working with state health and agriculture officials to trace the source of the contaminated Raw Milk and Raw Milk products.

Until more information is available about which farms may be supplying contaminated Milk or until officials can test Milk from these farms, CDC recommends that anyone who drank Raw Milk or consumed Raw Milk products from Udder Milk in the past six (6) months visit their doctor for antibiotics to prevent illness. Information suggests that the company delivers its Milk and/or Milk products in the US states of Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island.

All people who consumed Raw Milk and Raw Milk products from Udder Milk should seek immediate medical care and begin antibiotic therapy to prevent future chronic disease from RB51. The Brucella RB51 strain is resistant to some antibiotics that would normally be used to prevent or treat Brucellosis. Therefore, people who consumed Raw Milk from Udder Milk should tell their doctor that they may have been exposed to this particular Brucella strain. Doctors can learn more about testing patients for RB51 and which antibiotics to prevent or cure infection at https://www.cdc.gov/brucellosis/clinicians/rb51-raw-milk.html.
