WISE COUNTY, TX (KAUZ) -

The Wichita Falls Wichita County Public Health District released a statement Tuesday afternoon for citizens to be aware of a recall of raw, or unpasteurized milk from a Wise County dairy.

The Texas Department of State Health Services is working with K-Bar Dairy in Paradise, Texas after a person was hospitalized with Brucella bacteria after drinking the raw milk.

Raw or unpasteurized milk is from cows other animals that have not been pasteurized to kill harmful bacteria like Brucella, Salmonella, Listeria, E. Coli, and Campylobacter. The Health District recommends that people drink and eat only pasteurized dairy products.

The DSHS is also investigating other reports of illnesses that could be linked to this product. Those who have consumed raw milk from this dairy since June 1 are considered to be at high risk for Brucella infection.

Brucella can cause symptoms including fever, sweats, headache, muscle and joint pain, loss of appetite and fatigue. These symptoms can persist for a long time or may come and go repeatedly. 

Less common symptoms include inflammation of the heart, swelling of the liver and spleen, neurologic symptoms,
and in pregnant women, miscarriage.

DSHS officials said pregnant women, very young children, older adults, and people with suppressed immune systems are at an increased risk of serious illness due to Brucella.

If you have any questions regarding Brucella, call (940) 761-7803.
