A recall has been issued for raw milk that was produced by Swan Bros. Dairy, Inc which is in Claremore.

Oklahoma Agriculture, Food, and Forestry said the products are being recalled statewide due to "the confirmed detection of Campylobacter jejuni."

Officials said the raw milk products were sold in plastic half-gallons, gallons, and pints directly from Swan Bros. Dairy in Claremore.

Officials said this includes raw whole milk, raw 2% milk, raw skim milk and raw heavy cream that was sold in pints.

Officials said campylobacteriosis can cause symptoms that include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever.

Officials said in a news release that the "Illness usually occurs 2 to 5 days after exposure to campylobacter and lasts about a week. The illness is usually mild and some people with campylobacteriosis have no symptoms at all. However, in some persons with compromised immune systems or for those receiving chemotherapy, it can cause a serious, life-threatening infection."

Officials also stated that most people recover completely.

Officials said currently 10 people have tested positive for the infection from the listed products.

Officials stated that Raw milk cheeses are considered safe if aged at least 60 days, and Campylobactosis is not usually spread from person to person.

Anyone who has purchased or received their raw milk products between April 9 and June 22 is strongly urged to dispose of any remaining product, officials said.
