So, what do infected cheese and infected ice cream have in common? A "duh moment" if ever there was one...they both originate from the bodies of very sick cows whose milk is marketed as nature's perfect food for humans.

On Friday, August 26, 2011, the Pennsylvania Department of Health issued an advisory regarding milk and ice cream products sold by Brunton Dairy.

So far, there have been 16 cases of Yersinia enterocolitica reported by people who ate ice cream treats from this dairy farm. The Health Department even found the Yersinia in an unopened carton of ice cream.

Before the summer began, five people got ill from the same rare bacteria found in dairy products produced by Brunton Dairy Farm. Seems as if the Pennsylvania Health Department has been sitting naked on their own unwashed hands...Nice job, guys! Are you going to issue apologies to the 16 sick people whose health might now be compromised for the remainder of their lives?

Notmilk took the opportunity during the opening rain and wind of yesterday's pre-hurricane to investigate Yersinia enterocolitica. Here is what was found...

A peer reviewed pediatrics journal called Acta Paediatrica describes itself this way:

"Acta Paeiatrica is a peer-reviewed monthly journal at the forefront of international pediatric research. It covers both clinical and experimental research in all areas of pediatrics including: neonatal medicine, developmental medicine, adolescent medicine, child health and environment psychosomatic pediatrics, and child health in developing countries."

The July, 2011 issue of Acta Paediatrica contains a study in which 220 children (ages 4-16) with recurring bouts of severe abdominal pain were studied.

Researchers found that one out of eight of those unfortunate ailing children tested positive for Yersinia enterocolitica.

The dairy farmers and health experts knew the risk in June, and continued to allow the selling of tainted milk and ice cream throughout the summer. Who takes responsibilty for marketing poison to our children?

The guilty one is not he who commits the sin, but the one who causes the darkness.
