NORTH DAKOTA — The CDC is warning people in several states, including North Dakota, who may have consumed raw milk or raw milk products from a North Texas dairy farm.

CDC officials are issuing a Brucellosis warning after two cows tested positive for the bacteria at the K-Bar Dairy in Paradise, Texas.

They are warning consumers from North Dakota, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Ohio and Tennessee after at least one person reported getting sick after eating non-pasteurized products from June through August 7.

They are asking people who may have been in contact with these products to see a doctor and take antibiotics.

Brucellosis can cause symptoms similar to the flu, but have long-term complications like heart problems and meningitis.
