Swan Bros. Dairy in Claremore, Oklahoma is recalling its raw milk.  The Oklahoma State Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry found Campylobacter bacteria in a sample collected from Swan Bros. Dairy.


10 Oklahomans have contracted Campylobacter food poisoning after consuming raw milk from Swan Bros. Dairy. Inc.

Raw Milk Recall

Oklahomans who bought Swan Bros. Dairy raw milk between April 9 and June 22 are being strongly urged to dispose of any remaining raw milk.  Swan Bros. Dairy sold raw whole milk, raw 2% milk, raw skim milk in plastic half-gallons, gallons, and pints.  Swan Bros. sold raw heavy cream in pints.

Symptoms of Campylobacter food poisoning include diarrhea—often bloody, abdominal cramps, and fever. These symptoms could be paired with nausea and vomiting.

Campylobacter Symptoms

Campylobacter symptoms include:

  • Diarrhea (often bloody)
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Fever

Symptoms usually begin within 2 to 5 days of consuming the contaminated food product.

Campylobacter Treatment

Campylobacter infections are often treated with antibiotics.  Anyone who is experiencing Campylobacter symptoms after consuming raw milk from Swan Bros. Dairy should talk to their doctor.

Raw Milk

Most milk sold in stores is pasteurized.  The high temperatures involved in pasteurization can kill harmful food poisoning pathogens like Campylobacter.  Raw milk is not pasteurized.  As a result, raw milk has been linked to many outbreaks of Campylobacter food poisoning.
