State: 2 farms produced milk that made dozens ill

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Two dairy farms have been identified as the sources of raw milk that sickened dozens of people at separate school events.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1uxWSbkhttp://bit.ly/1uxWSbk ), the Department of Health Services says a farm operated by Roland and Diana Reed of Arkansaw provided raw milk that sickened 38 people associated with the Durand High School Football team this fall.

The newspaper reports that DHS identified Schaal Dairy Farm in Racine County as the source of unpasteurized milk that sickened 16 people at an elementary school event in 2011.

A message left at the Schaal farm was not returned to the AP. A phone call to Reed reached a busy signal.

The Journal Sentinel obtained the information through open records requests.

The Associated Press also requested the records.
